Paget Brewster Joins ABC's Saint Francis Pilot

Paget Brewster Joins St Francis Comedy PilotCriminal Minds alum Paget Brewster has been cast opposite The Sopranos‘ Michael Imperioli in the ABC sitcom pilot Saint Francis.

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.”
