|Chris Parnell as Dr. Leo Spaceman on NBC's 30 Rock|
A month back we sneaked a peek
at the CBS fall line-up and found Big D
, a Warner Bros. Television production about "a New York couple who moves to the man's hometown of Dallas, where his Southern-belle mother makes life complicated for his East coast wife." Right -- awesome. Now, from The Hollywood Reporter
come more details
that make this sitcom sound a wee bit more intriguing -- if only because the possible addition of a Spaceman
(Chris Parnell) and the NSEA Protector's outer-space alien Laliari
(Missi Pyle) promise something other than complete and absolute suck. So too does the announcement that an actual Texan -- Tony Award-winner Deanna Dunagan
, born in Monahans out in West Texas -- will join the cast.
In WBTV's Big D, a New York couple moves to the husband's hometown of Dallas, where his Southern belle mother (Dunagan) makes life complicated for his East Coast wife. Pyle will play the husband's sister, who is prone to emotional displays. Parnell in negotiations to play her husband, a preacher.
