With Mike & Molly coming to an end, co-star Katy Mixon has landed the lead in another comedy project, ABC’s single-camera pilot The Second Fattest Housewife In Westport, from Kapital Entertainment and ABC Studios.
Written by Sarah Dunn and directed by Ruben Fleischer, The Second Fattest Housewife In Westport is narrated by Katie (Mixon), a (slightly) larger, strong-willed mother raising her flawed family of three in a wealthy town filled with “perfect” wives and their “perfect” offspring. Dunn executive produces with Aaron Kaplan, Rick Wiener, Kenny Schwartz and Fleischer.
For the past six seasons, Mixon played Victoria Flynn, Molly’s (Melissa McCarthy) dimwitted, party-girl sister on the CBS sitcom Mike & Molly. She also co-starred on HBO’s Eastbound & Down. Mixon is repped by WME and Principal Entertainment LA.
