Way back in November 09, we were excited when we first learned that Minnie Driver would be guest-starring on Modern Family.
Her appearance was wonderful, of course, and we're happy to hear that Minnie is finally returning to TV in CBS' drama pilot Hail Mary.
She'll star as "a suburban single mom who teams up with a street-smart hustler to solve crimes."
Showrunner Ilene Chaiken of Showtime's The L Word fame is on board, and Joel Silver & Jeff Wadlow are exec producing.
Seems like a pretty solid team! We'll be honest though, a crime-solving suburban mom doesn't sound like the most intriguing premise in the world to us, but we're def inclined to give Minnie Driver the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise.
Maybe Minnie will make this show, which sounds kind of like a drug-free Weeds, into a hit!
Will U give Minnie Driver's upcoming show a try?
