Glee is not over yet, but Jane Lynch has already booked her next role.
She has been given her own show, and will be is taking her cutthroat-Sue-Sylvester act in a different direction; playing a sarcastic guardian angel in a new CBS comedy pilot called Angel From Hell.
In the half-hour show — written and executive produced by Scrubs and Spin City’s Tad Quill — the Emmy-winning Lynch plays Amy, guardian angel to Allison, who can’t tell if this she is an actual angel or a deranged life coach who eats intensity for lunch.
Given her previous comedic counselling roles – therefore have been more than one – Lynch should have lots of fun playing both good cop and bad cop in Angel from Hell.
Lynch has won two Emmys, one for her co-starring role on Fox’s Glee and one for hosting NBC’s Hollywood Game Night. She has a long-standing relationship with CBS, stemming from her recurring role on Two and a Half Men where she did 14 episodes over a period of 10 years.
