Well known British comic Tracey Ullman has just signed on for a 'Good Session' with CBS.
Executive produced by Matt Miller ('Chuck,' 'Human Target'), 'Good Session' is about a seemingly happy married couple that reaches an impasse when it comes to the issue of having children. To resolve the dispute, the couple seeks advice from a therapist, only to quickly discover that they have many more unaddressed issues between them that need to be worked out first.
'Psych' star James Roday is set to play male lead Joel in the comedy, although the part of his wife Lindsay still has yet to be cast. 'Mad Men's Rich Sommer is also attached in a supporting role. Ullman will now play Ellen, Joel and Lindsay's astute, insightful couples counselor, who uses her knowledge and unique sense of humor to help them get the truth out in the open.
Ullman first gained fame through her late '80s sketch comedy series 'The Tracey Ullman Show' (which launched a little cartoon show called 'The Simpsons'), and went on to create and star in follow-up programs 'Tracey Takes On...' and 'Tracey Ullman's State of the Union.' While she's done guest spots on shows like 'How I Met Your Mother,' 'Will & Grace,' and 'Ally McBeal,' 'Good Session' marks Ullman's first ever series regular role on broadcast television.
'Good Session' is still in the pilot stage, but with names like Roday and Ullman attached, it is very likely to get a series pick-up for the 2014-2015 season.
