JoAnna Garcia Swisher (Once Upon a Time, Reba, Better with You, and the upcoming Astronaut Wives Club) has been tapped to star in the untitled Tommy Johnagin pilot for CBS/Warner Bros.

She joins the half-hour comedy as Michelle, a successful pediatrician married to Tommy (Tommy Johnagin), with whom she shares a daughter named Ashley.

Loosely based on Johnagin’s life, the show centers around the stand-up comedian raising a family in his hometown in the Midwest. Surviving Jack’s Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker will produce the comedy, and Bill Lawrence, who created Scrubs, will executive produce.
