Annie Mumolo, actress in This Is 40 and co-writer with Kristen Wiig on Bridesmaids, has joined the ABC comedy pilot Middle Age Rage. Mumolo will star as Carol, a wife and mother at the eponymous stage in life. She's "fed up with feeling invisible and begins to speak up and demand the respect she feels she’s earned." The show's written by Cheryl Holliday, who has done work on Martin, King of the Hill, and has a truly noteworthy IMDb profile photo.
