JoAnna Garcia Swisher Grandfathered

TVLine Items: Astronaut Wife to Fox, Miss America Adds Co-Host & More

John Stamos is (literally) about to charm the pants off JoAnna Garcia Swisher.

The Astronaut Wives Club actress will guest-star on Fox’s freshman fall comedy Grandfathered, which stars Stamos as a lifelong bachelor who discovers he’s got a son and granddaughter.

Per EW.com, Swisher will play Sloan, a cute and bubbly admissions officer at a prestigious preschool where Stamos’ Jimmy hopes to enroll his granddaughter, Edie. After Jimmy hooks up with Sloan, it causes complications with Edie’s admission prospects.

Grandfathered bows Tuesday, Sept. 29, at 8/7c.
