The project, from Andrea Abbate (Accidentally on Purpose), centers on Karey, the clean-nosed black sheep in a family of petty thieves, drug addicts, and narcissists. When her brother is sent to prison, she decides to raise his kids along with her adopted black son and give them the normal lives they deserve.

Delfino had been cast as Karey’s clueless sister Penny. According to sources, the actress’ departure was not performance based, but rather the result of a change in direction for the character. The role is currently being recast.

Jane Seymour was previously cast as Karey and Penny’s mom.

  • This girl can’t catch a break! First, State Of Georgia tanked, then that Office spin-off didn’t take off, now this. She is pretty good, I really do hope she finds good work.
