Jane Lynch has signed on to co-star opposite Christine Taylor in CBS' untitled comedy; Ben Stiller is producing and directing the show.
Fran Kranz and Modi also have been cast in the project, which stars Taylor as a version of herself, a successful Hollywood actress who stays close to her small-town roots and has a lot of relatives from her hometown still very involved in her life. The Hollywood Reporter says Lynch will play Taylor's mother; Kranz will play Taylor's brother, while Modi has landed the role of the house manager. Stiller is set to recur as Taylor's husband.
Look for the show to air as a midseason replacement.
