Katy Mixon ABC Pilot

Mike & Molly's Katy Mixon to Star in ABC's Second-Fattest Housewife Pilot

The Mike & Molly family is moving on.

Five weeks after CBS double-secret officially confirmed that the Melissa McCarthy-fronted sitcom is in its farewell run, Katy Mixon has booked the lead role in the ABC comedy pilot The Second-Fattest Housewife in Westport.

Penned by Sarah Dunn (Manhattan Love Story, Spin City), the single-camera comedy is narrated by Katie, a strong-willed mother who is raising her flawed family in a wealthy Connecticut enclave filled with “perfect” wives and their “perfect” offspring.

Our sister site Deadline reported on the casting.

Mixon’s previous TV credits also include Eastbound & Down and Two and a Half Men.

Currently on hiatus after a brief Wednesday run, Mike & Molly will resume its sixth and final season at a date TBD.

    The silver lining to an unfortunate cancellation right here – Katy Mixon headlining a show. This is now one of the show’s I’m most interested in this pilot season.

    I love love love her and so happy that ABC is smart enough to pick up such a talented and hilarious actress!!!! CBS made the BIGGEST MISTAKE cancelling Mike * Molly. But so happy that “Victoria” will get the lead actress role she deserves!!! So excited now!!!

    Not trying to be rude, but after not watching Mike and Molly for a while, I noticed that she looked a lot heavier than she used to in last night’s episode. Is she pregnant?

    I loved Katy on Mike and Molly. She is sexy
    funny and talented. I am a fan and will
    watch her on anything she’s in. I thought
    Katy, Vince, Molly’s mom and Mike’s mom
    carried the show.
