Jaime Pressly To Star In TV Land Series ‘Jennifer Falls’
Emmy winner and Kinston, North Carolina native Jaime Pressly (My Name is Earl, Joe Dirt, I Love You Man) is set to return to TV as the lead in a new sitcom on TV Land.
Emmy Award-winning actress Jaime Pressly has been cast in the lead role for TV Land’s new pilot Jennifer Falls, it was announced yesterday by Keith Cox, Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for the network.
Pressly, best known for her work on the NBC series My Name is Earl, will play the lead character, Jennifer Doyle, in this multi-camera pilot. Jennifer Falls revolves around a career woman and mother (Pressly) who must move back in with her own mom after being let go from her high-powered, six-figure salary job. With her teenage daughter in tow, Jennifer has to face her new life, trying to reconnect with old friends in her hometown and making ends meet as a waitress in her brother’s bar.
“It’s amazing to have someone like Jaime Pressly on board for Jennifer Falls,” said Cox. “We loved this script from the moment we read it, and Jaime just brings the role to life perfectly.”
The pilot is written, created and executive produced by Matthew Carlson (The Wonder Years, Malcolm in the Middle), with Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis (Reba, The Exes) also serving as executive producers.
