Psych is ramping up its guest slate. Loretta Devine, star of Lifetime’s The Client List, and Peggy Lipton, best known for The Mod Squad, have joined the season eight cast of the long-running comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
In the fifth episode, Devine will play “foxy” Melba Birdson, a former back-up singer for 1960s sensation Myles Valour Jr… In the same hour, Lipton will portray Scarlet Jones, reliving her days as the main squeeze of notorious mob boss Rodney Caruso.
It should be interesting to see how USA is going to make these sitcoms work with their schedule of more action-packed one hour serials. It’s good that they are “expanding the network brand” like the article says. I hope they make these sitcoms at the same quality as the rest of their programming.
