Penned by Chris Moynihan (Man Up), the multi-camera project follows a blue-collar, no-nonsense, Long Island cop and family man (Imperioli) as he butts heads with the modern, liberal world when his 29-year-old sister gets pregnant out of wedlock.
Per our sister site Deadline, Brewster will play Imperioli’s age-obsessed, going-on-40 wife, who happens to be supportive of her expectant sis-in-law.
Since exiting Criminal Minds as a series regular, Brewster has shown the funny in gigs on Modern Family and Community, as well as in last year’s passed-on ABC sitcom pilot Spy. As she recently told TVLine, she leans towards “things that really, really excite me and scare me a bit. And that’s what comedy does.”
