Joan Cusack Lines Up Two TV Gigs

Joan Cusack is a wanted woman on the boob tube.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, John's big sis has landed two TV gigs - her own series on NBC and a starring role in a Lifetime tele-flick.

Cuscak will develop a psychiatry-themed comedy for the Peacock based on an original idea of hers. The actress will also serve as producer alongside Julie Yen on the yet-untitled series, while John Markus (Larry Sanders Show) will write and executive produce.

Over on Lifetime, Cusack will headline Acceptance, a dramedy based on Susan Coll's novel about an overachieving teen (Mae Whitman) stressing over college applications and her parents' divorce. Cusack will play her mother, whose sole purpose in getting her daughter admitted to a top-notch school is so she can get an upgrade in her next husband. Now that's what you call priorities.

Penned by Suzette Courture, Acceptance will be directed by Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 helmer Sanaa Hamri.
