Dana Delany Joins FX's The Comedians as Billy Crystal's Wife

Dana Delany The Comedians

Dana Delany is venturing into (mostly) uncharted waters: the half-hour comedy.

The TV vet and multiple Emmy winner has joined the cast of FX’s upcoming Billy Crystal-Josh Gad sitcom The Comedians in a recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Delany will play Sharon, the longtime wife of Crystal’s veteran-comic character.

This marks the Body of Proof actress’ first major half-hour comedy gig in nearly three decades (since 1987’s short-lived NBC sitcom Sweet Surrender).

Delany will juggle her Comedians duties with her regular role in Amazon’s Hand of God, which is on the verge of snagging a series order.
