‘Glee’ season 6: Jane Lynch books post-show pilot on CBS

Sue Sylvester -Much as we expected, Jane Lynch may not be devoid of a job for a very long time at all now that she is done filming “Glee.”

According to a new report from Deadline, the actress has been cast in a new CBS pilot entitled “Angel from Hell,” playing a loud, over-the-top woman named Amy who comes into the life of the younger Allison, and claims to be a sort of guardian angel. The reporting here is not entirely clear as to whether or not Amy is meant to be an actual angel, but that may be a part of the point here. These two character forge an unlikely bond, and this becomes the crux for the rest of the series. It is described as a half-hour comedy, though it is not clear if it will be single-camera or multi-camera (which is typically filmed in front of a live audience) just yet.

Given that the Allison character has yet to be cast, this is one of the shows that is further behind than some others currently in pilot season. If we were to make one suggestion here, though, it would be to potentially cast Alison Brie for the other character. With many other “Community” stars (including Danny Pudi and Ken Jeong) having booked pilots elsewhere, it only makes sense for her to, as well. That shows seems to be winding down, regardless of if there is confirmation or not about season 6 being the end.

If “Angel from Hell” is ordered to series, it will be announced in May. At the moment, we feel better about this one than most other comedies we’ve heard about, save for maybe the aforementioned Pudi one. We may even prefer this right now to the new “Super Clyde,” now that we know that Rupert Grint is not playing the lead this time.
