New York, NY – August 5, 2013 –  Emmy® Award-winning actress Jaime Pressly has been cast in the lead role for TV Land’s new pilot “Jennifer Falls,” it was announced today by Keith Cox, Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for the network.  Pressly, best known for her work on the NBC series “My Name is Earl,” will play the lead character, Jennifer Doyle, in this multi-camera pilot. “Jennifer Falls" revolves around a career woman and mother (Pressly) who must move back in with her own mom after being let go from her high-powered, six-figure salary job. With her teenage daughter in tow, Jennifer has to face her new life, trying to reconnect with old friends in her hometown and making ends meet as a waitress in her brother’s bar. 
 
“It’s amazing to have someone like Jaime Pressly on board for ‘Jennifer Falls,'” said Cox. “We loved this script from the moment we read it, and Jaime just brings the role to life perfectly.”
 
The pilot is written, created and executive produced by Matthew Carlson (“The Wonder Years,” “Malcolm in the Middle”), with Michael Hanel and Mindy Schultheis (“Reba,” “The Exes”) also serving as executive producers.

    Oh snap.

    They should just bring back Earl. The cast isn’t busy and its ratings were still pretty good when it was canceled.

    @oliver
    i agree completely, but from what i can gather the writers are busy on raising hope (though i think theyd gladly do both considering how many my name is earl reunions have been on that show lol)

    anyone else notice that the premise of this show is extremely similar to how to live with your parents?

    I really hope this does well. I love Jaime but she seems to have a hard time picking good projects since Earl. For the record, I too would like to see Earl come back.

    Bring back Earl ):
