Best Supporting Actress Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver has signed on to star in the new single camera CBS comedy The McCarthys, EW confirmed Thursday.

Weaver charmed audiences and Academy voters this past year with her portrayal of the supportive wife, mother and Philadelphia Eagles fan Dolores in Silver Linings Playbook. This new project will take the Australian actress to Boston to portray another mother in a similarly sports-obsessed family. Her character was described as “having no filter.” Jack McGee (who was in David O. Russell’s The Fighter) will play her husband Arthur, a politically incorrect high school basketball coach. »
