Becki Newton may soon return to the small screen. The actress, best known for her role on Ugly Betty, has been cast in a new FOX comedy in development. Chris Case is behind the yet to be titled series, and it is based on his life experiences.
According to Deadline, Newton has been cast as the wife of the lead of the series. Deadline shared more about the plot of the series:
“The untitled inter-racial family comedy (fka My White Wife And Kids) follows Jay “Havoc” Hammond, an African American, ex-NFL lineman who recently moved in with his white wife, Christy (Newton), and her two oddball sons, as he struggles to win the most challenging game of his life: fatherhood. Gorgeous, smart, and strong with a soulful depth, Christy is a psychologist who works with athletes to help overcome anything from an addiction to drugs to an addiction to food.”
Newton has appeared in several series since the end of Ugly Betty after four seasons in 2010, including How I Met Your Mother, The Goodwin Games, and Weird Loners.
