Alyssa Milano Lands Lead Role in CBS' What Goes Around Comes Around Pilot

Alyssa Milano is going from Mistresses to Mrs.

The TV vet has landed the female lead in CBS’ comedy pilot What Goes Around Comes Around — reuniting her with Jason Lee, with whom she guest-starred on My Name Is Earl. Our sister site Deadline broke the news.

The potential series, written by Dan Kopelman (Rules of Engagement, Galavant), follows two fortysomething parents — Robin (Milano) and Kenny (Lee) — who were wild and reckless teenagers and now face their worst nightmare: raising three adolescents of their own.

Milano’s character will struggle to make good on her promise to herself not to follow in her own parents’ strict style.

Milano exited Mistresses in 2014, after its second season.

Deadline also notes that Jee Young Han (who has guest starred on Shameless and The Good Wife) will play an “opinionated receptionist” at the hip music management company owned by Kenny.

    I’ve been a fan of Alyssa since Charmed, but this sounds like Still Standing meets War at Home. A very tired premise, but with this cast it may be good.

  2. Rob says:

    Is this multi or single cam?

  3. Ian says:

    The casts always make or break standard sitcoms like this. Alyssa and Jason sounds fantastic!

  4. Troy says:

    This sounds oddly like that Christina Applegate/Will Arnett show that was on for two seasons…I forget what it was called. Up All Night or something like that?

  5. Stacy says:

    Hmm. The premise is old, but relatable. The casting is right, but you can never tell whether the script will be a rehash or modern brilliance.

    What about fighting for a well deserved Charmed reunion? :((
