‘Psych’ Star Maggie Lawson and Jane Lynch to Star in CBS Comedy Pilot

Maggie Lawson has been cast to co-star opposite “Glee’s” Jane Lynch in the CBS comedy pilot “Angel From Hell,” Variety has learned.

The “Psych” alum will play Allison, a multitasker and perfectionist who’s leery when a woman claiming to be her guardian angel shows up, offering to be her new best friend. She’s inclined to believe that Amy (Jane Lynch) is just another wingnut, except that every last one of Amy’s pronouncements comes true.

The half-hour laffer comes from Tad Quill (“Scrubs,” “Samantha Who?”), who penned the pilot and will exec produce the CBS Television Studios project. Don Scardino (“30 Rock,” “2 Broke Girls”) will serve as director.

Lawson is repped by Alchemy Entertainment and Gersh.
