Crista Flanagan, who became a permanent part of Mad Men lore on Sunday when her character ran over an ad exec’s foot with a lawn tractor, is joining ABC’s new Kelsey Grammer sitcom, Hank.

The actress, who also spent three years on MADtv, will play the recurring role of Dawn, the wife of David Koechner’s Grady and sister-in-law to Grammer’s Hank. She replaces Gilmore Girls alum Melissa McCarthy, who dropped out when she landed a supporting role in the Katherine Heigl-Josh Duhamel romantic comedy, Life as We Know It.

The fate of Flanagan’s Mad alter ego, Lois, was left up in the air in last week’s episode, although it’s hard to imagine Sterling Cooper keeping her on in the wake of hoof-gate.
