Cougar Town Casts Ellie's Mother

at . Comments

Susan Blakely has been cast in a horribly exciting new role.

The veteran actress (Men of a Certain Age, Southland) will appear this season on Cougar Town, TV Line confirms, portraying Ellie's mother and initially making a positive impression on Ellie's friends. But that won't last very long.

No premiere date has been set for Cougar Town yet. Insiders hint that it may air prior to 2012, however.
