Jaime Pressly (“My Name is Earl”), an Emmy winner, is relocating to another little TV town. As “Welcome to Flatch” on Fox enters its second season, Pressly has been added to the cast. She will portray Realtor Barb Flatch, who follows a difficult divorce and moves back to her hometown.
The logline for Pressly’s character reads, “She believes in second chances and wants to give Flatch the shine up it deserves, one margarita at a time.” The second season of “Welcome to Flatch” premieres on Thursday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET.
Pressly joins the cast of “Succession,” which also features Krystal Smith, Sam Straley (“The Dropout”), Seann William Scott (“American Pie”), Aya Cash (“You’re The Worst”), Justin Linville, and comic Holmes. A mockumentary titled “Welcome to Flatch” centers on the peculiar and eccentric residents in the sleepy Midwestern hamlet of Flatch, Ohio.
Pressly most recently appeared in Chuck Lorrie’s “Mom” as Jill Kendall. She received Golden Globe and SAG nominations, and in 2007 for “My Name Is Earl,” she won the Emmy for comedy supporting actress.
The star’s filmography also includes Columbia Pictures’ “The Adventures of Joe Dirt” with David Spade and DreamWorks’ “I Love You, Man,” directed by John Hamburg, starring Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, and Jon Favreau.
Director/executive producer Paul Feig (“Bridesmaids”) and executive producer Jenny Bicks (“Sex and the City”) are behind “Welcome to Flatch.” “This Country” by BBC Studios served as inspiration for the series. Fox Entertainment, BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production company, and Lionsgate are the producers of the program.
Executive producers include Bicks of Perkins Street Productions, Feig of Feigco Entertainment, Angie Stephenson of BBC Studios, Charlie Cooper, and Daisy May Cooper, who developed the original BBC series. Pressly is represented by the Brecheen Feldman Breimer Silver & Thompson law firm, Artists First, Gersh Agency, and David B. Feldman, Esq.
