Earl and Billie are getting back together! Alyssa Milano is set as the female lead opposite Jason Lee in CBS’ comedy pilot What Goes Around Comes Around. The duo, who played husband and wife Earl and Billie on Lee’s NBC single-camera comedy series My Name Is Earl, will once again play a couple in the CBS single-camera pilot. Also cast in the project, from Dan Kopelman and Aaron Kaplan, is Jee Young Han.
Written by Kopelman and directed by Tim Story, What Goes Around Comes Around centers on two fortysomething parents — Kenny (Lee), a husband, father and owner of a hip music management company; and Robin (Milano) — who were wild and reckless teenagers now face their worst nightmare of raising three teenagers. After vowing that she’d never be like her overly strict parents, Robin Spiller now tries to be open and understanding with her teenage kids — but sometimes she’d just like to lock them up until they’re ready for college.
Han plays Jess, the opinionated receptionist at Kenny’s (Lee) firm, who is always painting the worst-case scenarios of what his kids are doing and loves cornering Kenny’s clients for her own thrills.
Kopelman, Kaplan and Story executive produce for Warner Bros. TV and Kapital Entertainment.
This marks the first series gig for Milano since starring on the first two seasons of ABC’s Mistresses. The Charmed alumna and fashion entrepreneur, who recurred on My Name Is Earl, is currently the host and a judge on Lifetime’s Project Runway All Stars. Additionally, she entered the world of graphic novels with Hacktivist. MilanoCBS Logo is repped by CAA.
