Cybill Shepherd to Guest Star on Trophy Wife As...

at . Comments

Cybill Shepherd is headed to CBS.

The veteran actress has been cast on Trophy Wife as Crickett, the mother of Malin Akerman's Kate who is described by E! sources as a "fun-loving, spontaneous wild child."

As you might expect, this character's arrival in early 2014 will throw the family into a state of panic and chaos.

Cricket will mostly be featured on Episode 18 of the ABC sitcom, which some believe was the Best Comedy of 2013.

In addition to recent roles on Moonlighting, Cybill and The Client List, Shepherd has stopped by Psych and Law & Order: SVU recently.

Trophy Wife, meanwhile, is averaging 3.5 million weekly viewers and has been picked up for a full first season.
