Pilot News: Glee's Jane Lynch to Star as CBS' Angel From Hell

Jane Lynch Angel From Hell

The woman behind Sue Sylvester is lining up her next larger-than-life character.

Emmy winner Jane Lynch will follow up her Glee run with the title role in CBS’ comedy pilot Angel From Hell, our sister site Deadline reports.

In the project, brassy and flamboyant Amy (to be played by Lynch) enters a young woman named Allison’s life, claiming to be her guardian angel. They form an unlikely friendship, though Allison can’t be sure if Amy is indeed an angel or just nuts.

Angel From Hell hails from writer-executive producer Tad Quill (Bent, Scrubs).
