Sons of Anarchy MC Queen Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller-Morrow) has officially announced her return to half-hour comedy TV by revealing the news yesterday, that she’ll be joining a new comedy on CBS. The single-camera, currently untitled pilot is based on Australian comedy series Upper Middle Bogan, and actor John Carroll Lynch (American Horror Story: Freakshow/Hotel) will star opposite Katey.
Created by Dan O’Shannon, Robyn Butler, and Dan Hope, the comedy pilot will revolve around a wife and mother who discovers she was adopted as a child, and that her birth-family is a bizarre, yet affectionate group of drag racers. Katey will portray that wife and mother, Julie Lynch, who is married to Wayne Lynch and most definitely is the matriarch of the family.
While it’s been a few years since Katey took the lead in a comedy show, everyone is super excited that she’s decided to make a return to comedy! While we don’t yet have a trailer or preview of this untitled pilot coming from CBS, we do have a video of Katey roasting comedic genius Seth Green on the Roseanne Roast – she’s a hilarious lady! Tell us in the comments how you feel about a new Katey Sagal comedy coming!
