Pilot News: Betsy Brandt Joins CBS Family Comedy Life in Pieces

Betsy Brandt Life In Pieces

Betsy Brandt is looking to break good this pilot season.

Brandt has been cast opposite Colin Hanks (Fargo) in CBS’ single-camera comedy pilot Life in Pieces, our sister site Deadline reports, playing harrowed mother-of-three Heather.

As previously reported, Life in Pieces tells the story of one family through the separate perspectives of its different family members. Hanks is playing Heather’s little brother Greg, who’s not at all prepared to become a first-time dad.

In addition to Breaking Bad, Brandt recently recurred in NBC’s Parenthood and Showtime’s Masters of Sex.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    I really hope this means she won’t be back on Masters of Sex anymore. Her character’s whole incestuous story-line and anatomical problems was downright disturbing and too drawn out more that necessary.

    Glad she got a role on the show’s pilot. She did good in comedy on Michael J. Fox show. Looking forward to see her doing comedy again!

    I only know her as the sympathetic loan officer from Magic Mike. She seemed nice :)
