Anna Faris - New Anna Faris Role: Lead Role In Chuck Lorre Sitcom ‘Mom’

The new Anna Faris role sees the Scary Movie star join the growing list of movie stars seeking small screen success, with a role in Chuck Lorre’s new series Mom. CBS are working on a pilot for the show, which will star Faris as a newly-sober mom, trying to pull her life into order. According to The Wrap, it’s set in Napa Valley, California, which is notorious for its wine production. Let’s face it, this  could prove to be something of a stumbling block for a newly-sober mom.

Mom is being executive-produced by Chuck Lorre, who has something of a Midas touch when it comes to sitcom; he’s been responsible for shows such as The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men and Roseanne. He’s joined by Eddie Gorodetsky, with whom he has also worked on Two and a Half Men. They’re working on the script for the show, along with Gemma Baker (another Two and a Half Men colleague). Mom is being produced by Chuck Lorre Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Anna Faris is best known for her roles in the Scary Movie horror-spoof franchise and most notably, has also appeared in Lost In Translation, Brokeback Mountain and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Mom could turn out to be her most significant TV work to date, after her 2004 role in Friends as Erica, the mother of the twins adopted by Monica and Chandler Bing.
