Deadline:

EXCLUSIVE: Felicity Huffman is returning to acting — and to ABC — with a single-camera comedy that has landed a big pilot production commitment at the network. The Peanut Butter Falcon‘s Zack Gottsagen co-stars in the project from Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment.

Written by Becky Hartman Edwards, the untitled comedy is inspired by Susan Savage, the real-life owner of the Triple-A baseball team the Sacramento River Cats. It marks the first project Huffman has taken on since the 2019 college admission scandal.

The Emmy-winning actress has been heavily courted for TV series and pilots since she completed her short prison sentence after pleading guilty to fraud more than a year ago. Kaplan approached Huffman with the idea about a series inspired by Savage, which she responded to. He brought on Hartman Edwards as a writer, and Gottsagen, who has a talent deal with Kapital, came on board to co-star opposite Huffman. The project was taken out, attracting multiple offers and ultimately landing at ABC. It was then laid off at ABC Signature.

I don't know what think about that heavily courted comment...

I guess there is no such thing as bad publicity

I pondered if everyone does what she did to get her child in a particular school but she was unlucky by getting caught, so they are reaching out to hire her for that reason.

Or it could be they feel she was mercilessly prosecuted in the public eye, so just helping out.

Or just wanted to help her because she lost her contract with Hallmark.

It was Lori Loughlin that had the contract with Hallmark.  Felicity is an award winning actress so I think she has a better chance of reestablishing her career.

That's right. I was mixing things up.

I see that Lori Laughlin was also recently released from her prison term. None of the articles I skimmed mentioned anything about being offered work like Felicity has. I think they both committed the same crime and both paid for them, so why isn't Laughlin being offered a leg up and out? I wonder?

Could it be her attitude?

Could be. Huffman worked out a deal but Loughlin didn’t and went to jail
