Ordered to series last month and premiering this summer, the single-camera comedy follows Pressly’s Jennifer Doyle as she loses her six-figure-salary job and must return to living with her mother (Arrested Development‘s Jessica Walter) — with a teenage daughter (Dylan Gelula) in tow.

Suplee is replacing the previously cast Joel David Moore (Bones) as Jennifer’s brother Wayne, who owns a bar at which Jennifer winds up working. Nora Kirkpatrick (Greek) plays Wayne’s wife.

Since Earl‘s run ended, Suplee has guested on such series as Men at Work, Wilfred and Earl creator Greg Garcia’s Raising Hope.

    First My Name Is Earl, and then they played a married couple on Raising Hope, and now this! These two must love working together.

  2. Taylor says:

    Kind of over the blue-eyed, bleached blond, aging comediennes. Amy Poehler, Anna Farris, Jaime Pressly been there etc. Yawn

  3. Andy J says:

    This would be the third TV Land mini-reunion. “The Exes” reunited “3rd Rock From the Sun”‘s Kristen Johnston and Wayne Knight; and “Kirstie” reunited “Cheers”‘s Kirstie Alley and Rhea Perlman.

    What is it with everyone wearing hats and hipster glasses for their press photos? Is this the off-set uniform for Hollywood now? This strikes me as some kind of inside joke.

  5. Rob C says:

    Hopefully this turns out well. I would much prefer they would bring back My Name Is Earl. It was funny, hot girls and taught good morals.That’s a show I still watch and will always watch.
