Perrette has landed the female lead on Broke, and she will star opposite Jane the Virgin veteran Jaime Camil. 

The project focuses on a filthy rich trust fund baby (Camil) who gets cut off by his father, forcing him and his wife to move in with her estranged sister and share her home.

It's a convincing hook for a series, right?

As the manager of a bar, she is well-equipped to deal with any issues that get in her way.

One of those issues her sister, who she has had a fraught relationship with for several years. 

Jackie will need to put her own beliefs aside with the aim of creating a family environment. 

It sounds like a series that could be filled with humor if executed correctly. 

Perrette took to Twitter to give fans their first look at the show.
