Now that Glee has wrapped its final season, Jane Lynch has officially signed on for her next project: She'll play a maybe-guardian angel on CBS' new half-hour comedy Angel From Hell.
The show sounds a bit like a mash up of Touched By an Angel and Cupid: Lynch will play Amy, a "brassy and flamboyant" woman who barges into the life of Allison, claiming to be her guardian angel. Whether she really is or is just deluded will be an open-question, but Allison and Amy will form the requisite "unlikely" friendship.
It seems like a good fit for Lynch and the screwball-ness seems exactly like CBS' cup of tea. We'll see how well it actually pans out when the show starts.
