Meredith Baxter is headed to The Young and the Restless.
According to TV Guide, the veteran actress has been cast on television's highest-rated soap opera as a charming, intelligent middle-class woman named Maureen.
The character is described as secretly manipulative and “skilled at getting people to do the things she wants them to do by making them think it's their idea.”
Adds a rep for the CBS drama:
"When not hitting the sauce with her new drinking-buddy, Nikki, Maureen will be crossing with several key players on the Y&R canvas."
Baxter will forever be best known for playing Elyse Keaton on Family Ties. She has most recently appeared on such shows as Family Guy, Switched at Birth, The Neighbors, Glee and Finding Carter.
Look for Maureen to debut on September 8, to have many connections around town and to be featured prominently this fall.
