Pilot Scoop: Maggie Lawson Joins CBS' Angel From Hell, Opposite Jane Lynch

Maggie Lawson Cast CBS Pilot

Maggie Lawson can now consider Jane Lynch her own Angel From Hell.

TVLine has learned that the Psych alumna has landed the second lead role in the single-camera CBS comedy pilot, as Allison, a multi-tasker and perfectionist who is leery when a woman named Amy (Glee grad Lynch) shows up claiming to be her “guardian angel” and new best friend.

Allison is inclined to believe that Amy is just a nutjob — except that every last one of the stranger’s pronouncements comes true.

Angel From Hell is penned by Scrubs alum Tad Quill.

In addition to her eight-season run on Psych — where Lynch once guest-starred as the sister of Kirsten Nelson’s Karen — Lawson has starred on ABC’s Back in the Game and recurred on the final season of CBS’ Two and a Half Men.

Her Psych costars James Roday and Dule Hill in recent weeks have booked pilots of their own: ABC’s untitled family comedy fka The Brainy Bunch, and the CBS legal drama Doubt.

  1. Reminds a bit me of Call Me Fitz, but with a guardian angel in place of a conscience.

      It sounds like Wilfred, where a man sees a Dog in the shape of a man who gives him horrible advice and just messes with him. Its a good premise, but if it isn’t done well it could get old, quick.

      • Tyler says:

        I thought of exactly the same thing when I read the show’s synopsis. Hopefully, they do it differently.

    Hope Maggie Lawson’s new TV gig may rebound from that disappointing ABC sitcom Back in the Game opposite James Caan.

    Sounds good! They’re both funny so that bodes well. And I want to see everyone from Psych do well….and make that TV-movie we already need right.
