It's a comedy.
"Nurse Jackie" writer Liz Brixius adapted the script from a book by Douglas Coupland about a young woman (Ricci) who suddenly awakes after years in a coma and discovers she has a 17-year-old daughter (Cosgrove). The overachieving teen isn't exactly thrilled to welcome a free-spirited and previously Mia mom into her life.
The comedy pilot has a rather unexpected executive producer on board: "Law & Order" veteran Dick Wolf. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news of Cosgrove's casting.
For anyone else who remembers how adorable Ricci was as little Wednesday Addams in "The Addams Family" movies, don't worry: we feel old too. »
