Tube vet Judith Light will guest star as Kristen Johnston’s mother on the network’s new comedy series The Exes, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The sitcom centers around Holly (Johnston), a divorce attorney who ignores her own relationship issues by helping three divorced men get back on track. Holly also happens to live across the hall from the aforementioned trio, played by Donald Faison (Scrubs), Wayne Knight (Seinfeld) and David Alan Basche (The Starter Wife).
Light, a veteran of Who’s the Boss, has no shortage of experience playing a mom on TV. Most recently, she replaced Blythe Danner as Cooper’s mom on Nurse Jackie. She also spent several seasons as matriarch Claire Meade on Ugly Betty, on which Johnston also recurred.
The Exes premieres Nov. 30 at 10:30/9:30c, following the return of Hot in Cleveland.
