Jane Kaczmarek Finds a New Sitcom Mom Gig on Fox

Here's a little consolation prize to everyone who briefly thought seven-time Emmy nominee Jane Kaczmarek was going to appear on Breaking Bad: Malcolm in the Middle's matriarch has joined the Fox pilot Friends & Family. Adapted from the BBC's Gavin & Stacey, the single-camera comedy will feature Alexis Bledel and Parenthood's Jason Ritter in a long-distance relationship. Kaczmarek will play Ritter's mother, with Kurt Fuller as her onscreen husband.
