Entertainment Weekly reported that the actress will appear on episode 11 of the ABC comedy this season. The episode is titled “Meatballs II.” Essman will play a character based on a real person on the series.
EW shared the following about her role:
“On the show, [Edie Robb is] described as a “ballsy” and outspoken talent manager who happens to run in “the same yenta circles” as smother-mother Beverly (Wendi McLendon-Covey). As a manager, Edie has “a sharp eye and an even sharper tongue” and is a key connection for anyone (especially in Jenkintown, Pa.) looking to break into the business. As such, she’ll get involved with Adam (Sean Giambrone).”
The episode will air in early 2017, likely in January. Are you excited for this mini-reunion? Tell us what you think.
