Current Dallas guest star, and two time Tony and Daytime Emmy winner, Judith Light has just signed on for another primetime television project!
According to TVLine.com today, Judith has been cast as Henry Winkler’s wife, Tita in the ABC comedy pilot, The Winklers!
Deadline.com revealed that The Winklers is from Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal; Winkler’s son, director Max Winkler; and son-in-law, actor Rob Reinis. The project, which had a pilot production commitment, was conceived as a starring vehicle for Henry Winkler and is based on his relationship with his son-in-law. Josh Sussman of Glee will play Jonah, the son of Henry and Tita. And as to the story: “Though he has his own apartment, Jonah frequently stops by his parents’ home to take baths, hang out and receive praise from his parents or anyone else willing to hand out a compliment.”
This would mark a return for Judith to the TV sitcom comedy realm, after her turns on Ugly Betty and of course, Who’s The Boss? What do you think of Judith’s new role? Do you hope it goes to series? Let us know!
