It looks like Abigail Breslin’s Baby has met her match.

Katey Sagal is joining ABC’s upcoming three-hour Dirty Dancing TV movie. Sagal will play Vivian Pressman in the remake of the 1987 movie, and for those who need a quick catch-up, Pressman is best known for seducing younger male staff members at the Catskills resort where the Houseman family is vacationing. And let’s just say that she doesn’t take kindly to Johnny leaving her behind to be with Baby. 

Sagal joins a cast that already includes Bruce Greenwood, Abigail Breslin, Sarah Hyland, Debra Messing, Nicole Scherzinger, Colt Prattes, Shane Harper and more. The remake is adapted for television by American Horror Story’s Jessica Sharzer and directed by Wayne Blaire.
