Mom Wendy, a sexy, middle-class Brit with plenty of affectations and bourgeois attitudes, will discover that her daughter is keeping some secrets from her.

While known as Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman‘s titular frontier doc, Seymour recently has shown off her range with TV gigs on Franklin & Bash, Castle, How I Met Your Mother and Smallville.

Additionally, David Hornsby (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, How to Be a Gentleman) will appear in the same installment as a wealthy entrepreneur whose fortune is built on an idea his former friend Ben (Nat Faxon) sold him for peanuts.

The episode is tentatively slated to air in early 2013.

    • I agree… This show is underrated. It’s far superior to the god-awful Mindy Project. I could barely make it through an episode of that. I feel like this show has great characters who have great chemistry between them.

  • Totally agree. I adore this show and cannot understand why ratings are poor. Probably doesnt help going up against The Voice but we need to find a way to get people to watch! I will be so upset if its cancelled!!
