You’re the Worst’s Kether Donohue is set for a lead role opposite Matt Walsh, JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Vanessa Williams in Happy Accident, ABC’s single-camera family comedy pilot from Modern Family writers Abraham Higginbotham and Jon Pollack, 20th Century Fox TV and ABC Studios.
Written and executive produced by Higginbotham and Pollack, Happy Accident revolves around two Pittsburgh families, a father (Walsh) with three adult daughters (Swisher as Eleanor), and a hotel lounge singer (Williams) with her med student son, are forced together after a decades-old secret is revealed.
Donohue will play Danielle Bennett, Bud’s middle child, a single mother who’s emotionally sloppy, neurotic, dedicated to her neo-feminist politics to the point of self-defeating exhaustion.
Donohue plays Gretchen’s best friend Lindsay on FXX’s comedy series You’re the Worst, which will be ending its run after the current fifth season. The role earned her a Critics’ Choice Award nomination. Actress-singer Donohue also is known for her starring role as Jan in Fox’s live musical production of Grease Live! which went on to win five Emmys. She’s repped by ICM Partners, Authentic Talent & Literary Management, and Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer.
