CMT’s first scripted sitcom, “Working Class,” starring comedienne and “REBA” actress MELISSA PETERMAN and award-winning actor ED ASNER, makes its network debut FRIDAY, JANUARY 28th at 8p (ET/PT), followed by a second, all-new episode at 8:30p (ET/PT).
The new 12 episode, multi-camera series follows CARLI MITCHELL (played by PETERMAN), who is “a single mom from a rough and tumble background, trying to give her three kids a better life by moving them to an upscale suburb. She quickly finds that making the transition to ‘the good life’ is harder than she thought.”
The show will also feature multiple guest stars throughout the season, including VALORY MUSIC CO./STARSTRUCK star REBA McENTIRE, whose on-screen reunion with PETERMAN will air on FEBRUARY 4th.
Additional guest stars include DAVID FAUSTINO (“Married with Children”); KATHY KINNEY (“The Drew Carey Show”); MARTIN MULL (“Roseanne”) JOHN SCHNEIDER (“The Dukes of Hazzard”); RYAN STILES (“Whose Line Is It Anyway” and “The Drew Carey Show”); and LESLEY ANN WARREN (“In Plain Sight” and “Desperate Housewives”), as well as CMT’s own EVAN FARMER, host of “CMT Top 20 Countdown.”
