Enlightened Adds SNL Alum Molly Shannon for Season 2

It looks like Amy Jellicoe has gained an ally in her bid to bring down Abaddon.

According to Deadline, Molly Shannon has joined HBO's Enlightened for its second season. She's set to play an executive assistant at the corporation that inadvertently fuels Amy's investigation into Abaddon's shady practices. Shannon's character is said to also be a love interest for Tyler (creator Mike White).

Her personal life may be on the up now that her words to Levi about change and rehab have finally sunken in, but Amy's professional turbulence looks to take center stage in season 2. Read More...
