Former West Wing co-star Stockard Channing has signed onto Mandy Moore’s ABC comedy pilot.

Channing has joined the untitled half-hour comedy along with Kurt Fuller (Psych) as Moore’s parents on the show. She’ll play the warm and devoted and sometimes overbearing and manipulative matriarch of the family. Fuller plays a good-natured dad who’s used to taking a backseat to his take-charge wife. Majandra Delfino and Erinn Hayes also star.

Channing has a long TV career that includes 1980’s The Stockard Channing Show and the 2005 medical drama Out of Practice.
