Alice alum Linda Lavin has been cast as Sean Hayes‘ mom in his untitled NBC comedy pilot, TVLine has learned.
The network’s vehicle for Hayes, from Better Off Ted creator Victor Fresco, is a multi-camera project centering on a man attempting to both parent the teenage daughter who just moved in and appease a temperamental new boss. Hot In Cleveland‘s Todd Milliner also will produce.
Lavin played Alice‘s titular hash-slinger for nine seasons. Her TV credits also include Room for Two, Conrad Bloom, The O.C., The Sopranos and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
