Katy Mixon is moving on from her role as Melissa McCarthy’s sister on CBS’s “Mike & Molly,” snaring the lead role in a new ABC comedy project. Deadline.com reports that Mixon will star in the single-camera pilot “The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport.”
The project is being produced by Kapital Entertainment and ABC Studios. “Written by Sarah Dunn and directed by Ruben Fleischer, ‘The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport’ is narrated by Katie (Mixon), a (slightly) larger, strong-willed mother raising her flawed family of three in a wealthy town filled with ‘perfect’ wives and their ‘perfect’ offspring,” the story reports.
Dunn is executive producing along with Aaron Kaplan, Rick Wiener, Kenny Schwartz and Fleischer.
