An ‘Electric’ Ashley Austin Morris moves to primetime

Michael Schneider just posted about CBS’ pickup of “Mad Love,” whose pilot boasted names like Minka Kelly (“Friday Night Lights”), Lizzy Caplan (“Party Down”), Jason Biggs (“American Pie”) and Tyler Labine (“Reaper”).

But in our household, this pickup has potentially devastating consequences for our three children, due to perhaps the least famous name on the list. Ashley Austin Morris has played Francine Carruthers on two seasons of PBS’ “Electric Company” remake, and she’s a big favorite.

    Can’t believe it, but I just saw “Love Loss and What I Wore” in New York City and Ashley Austin Morris was one of the stars!!! She was beyond hilarious and really stole the show from some heavy hitter actors! I laughed so hard I cried! Now I really can’t wait to see her on CBS!!

    I love Francine! We’ve been seeing her in a Hardee’s commercial and she really makes me hungry for their fried chicken. I can’t wait to see her in this show–I saw Tyler Labine in another really awful show recently so I probably wouldn’t have watched this one but now that I know she’s in it I will. She’s a hilarious actress!
