Shannon will play Maggie, the sister of John Michael Higgins' Peter Lovett, one half of the 'Happily Divorced' couple who used to be married to (and still lives with) Fran (Fran Drescher) before coming out as a gay man. Like Fran, Maggie is recently divorced and moves to LA to stay with her brother and his ex. This all sounds well and good except for the fact that Fran holds a grudge against Maggie that dates back to Fran's wedding day... what will happen when new information about that fateful day comes to light?

Happily Divorced'Happily Divorced' is based on the real-life experiences between star Fran Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobsen, high school sweethearts who eventually divorced but remained friends when Jacobsen admitted to his homosexuality. The series became TV Land's third original scripted series, following 'Retired at 35' and 'Hot in Cleveland.'

Shannon's recent television credits include 'Neighbors From Hell' and 'Up All Night.' She also had a recurring guest appearance on 'Glee' back in 2010.

'Happily Divorced' returns to TV Land with new episodes on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 10:30pm EST. Shannon will be filming her episode in the coming weeks.
