"Criminal Minds" veteran Paget Brewster to topline "Spy" comedy pilot

PanARMENIAN.Net - Paget Brewster is getting up to some intrigue with her latest project. The "Criminal Minds" veteran is taking a turn into lighter territory, starring in ABC's upcoming comedy pilot "Spy" opposite "Children's Hospital" star Rob Corddry, TheWrap said.

The single-camera comedy, written by Simeon Goulden, stars Corddry as Tim, a well intentioned father of a highly intelligent and verbal son who inadvertently takes a job at the Secret Service in order to prove himself a worthy father.

Brewster will play Tim's ex-wife Erica, described as a cold, neurotic person who has long been seeing therapists. Having received zero custody of her son Marcus because of a pill addiction, Erica snipes viciously at Tim, whom she openly loathes for his utter lack of achievement, accomplishment or ambition.

ABC Studios and Hat Trick Productions are producing the pilot, with Jimmy Mullville and Helen Williams executive producing.

Most recently, Brewster has provided the voice of Elise on The Hub's animated dark comedy "Dan Vs."
