Debra Messing Joins CBS Comedy

Actress Debra Messing attends United Nations Every Woman Every Child Dinner 2012 on September 25, 2012 in New York, United States.

Just in case the writing on the wall was not quite legible enough for you: Smash star Debra Messing has been cast in a pilot for next season. Sources close to the project confirmed that Messing will star in a still-untitled CBS single-camera comedy about a Park Slope mom trying to balance work life and home life. In the script, Messing's character is described as "perpetually stressed" and "pretty but can't be bothered." Scarf wardrobe TBD.
