Anna Faris joins CBS sitcom from Chuck Lorre
The House Bunny may headline her own primetime sitcom next fall.
Anna Faris has been cast in Mom, a multi-camera comedy in development for CBS that’s from uber-producer Chuck Lorre. She will play a sober single mom who attempts to turn her life around in, all places, the Napa Valley.
Lorre penned the script with Two and a Half Men scribes Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker. Besides headlining The House Bunny, Faris’ other credits include Observe and Report and The Dictator.
