Show stars Melissa Peterman (“Reba”) as a single mom who struggles as she moves her kids to a better neighborhood. “Working Class” was one of four 15-minute comedy presentations CMT picked up, but appears to be the only series order for now.
“Working Class” was helped by the fact that Peterman is already a regular CMT presence: She hosts “The Singing Bee” for the country cabler as well. Thesp most recently starred in Lifetime’s “Rita Rocks.”
Steve Kazee also stars in the show, which is exec produced by Jill Cargerman.
