Pressly will play Barb Flatch, a realtor who returns to her hometown of Flatch after a bad divorce. “She believes in second chances and wants to give Flatch the glow up it deserves, one margarita at a time,” per the official description.
Welcome to Flatch is a mockumentary-style comedy that follows the oddball residents who live in the small Ohio town of Flatch. It debuted in March with a 14-episode freshman season, earning a surprise renewal in May. Season 2 will premiere Thursday, Sept. 29 at 9/8c, ahead of Call Me Kat‘s third season.
Pressly played Earl’s mean ex-wife Joy on NBC’s My Name Is Earl, earning an Emmy for best supporting actress in a comedy in 2007. She joined the cast of the CBS sitcom Mom in its second season as wealthy socialite Jill Kendall, becoming a series regular in Season 3 and remaining with the cast until its series finale last year.
