Dianne Wiest and Zoe Lister-Jones have joined the cast of the CBS comedy pilot Life in Pieces, EW has learned.
Life in Pieces, which also stars Colin Hanks and Betsy Brandt, is a comedy about one family told through the separate stories of its different family members—basically Modern Family for CBS.
The Emmy- and Oscar-winning Wiest (In Treatment) will play Joan Short, the matriarch who adores her family and would do absolutely anything for them… as long as she agrees with it.
Lister-Jones, who currently recurs as Schmidt’s love interest on New Girl, will play Jen, a woman used to being in control who discovers she has none after having a baby.
Justin Adler will write and executive-produce the comedy with Aaron Kaplan.
