Feud Alison Wright

TVLine Items: Americans Fave to Feud, ABC's Car Wash Reboot and More

The Americans alumna Alison Wright will soon find herself in the middle of a very different kind of cold war.

The actress has joined the cast of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series Feud, the first season of which chronicles the rivalry between film stars Joan Crawford (played by Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon), our sister site Deadline reports.

Wright — whose Americans character Martha was shipped off to Russia last season — will portray a development assistant who works for film director Robert Aldrich (Alfred Molina).

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* ABC is developing a workplace comedy based on the 1976 movie Car Wash, which starred comedians George Carlin and Richard Pryor, per The Hollywood Reporter. The project will explore one kid’s determination to create his own destiny and one man’s struggle to accept who he has become, and the bonds they form at Deluxe Car Wash.

* Rosie O’Donnell (The Fosters) will play the unapologetic mother of Frankie Shaw’s main character in Showtime’s comedy pilot SMILF.

* Nicholas Gonzalez (Sleepy Hollow, The Flash) will recur during Season 3 of Narcos as an American DEA agent, according to Deadline.

    Car Wash sounds very similar to the CBS sitcom Superior Donuts

    Maybe they should have done a reality game show for Car Wash. The winner gets a job working at a car wash.

    Glad she’s landed a new gig… although the fact that Wright didn’t receive an Emmy nomination for her astonishing work on The Americans last season still rankles.
