The Office’s Angela Kinsey is returning to NBC on its new upcoming series Bad Judge.
The comedy stars Kate Walsh as the sexually unapologetic, well-respected judge Rebecca, whose personal life is often messier than the criminals she sentences.
Kinsey will play the recurring role of Michelle Wagoner, Rebecca’s old pal from childhood, who is recently divorced and looks for help to regain some happiness and make up for the lost time she spent with her loser ex. Michelle and Rebecca are the Thelma and Louise of the San Fernando Valley. (As she never saw the ending of the movie, she continues to think it’s a buddy comedy.) Michelle—who works as a dental hygienist but lacks the same career ambition as Rebecca—will be a good sounding board for her friend, as well as a mischievous partner in crime.
Lately, Kinsey has been in high demand. The actress is set to topline and co-create a buddy comedy for ABC, and also recur on TBS comedy Your Family or Mine, in addition to her role on Hulu’s Hotwives of Orlando.
Bad Judge premieres Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
