Well known British actress Celia Imrie is headed over the pond to join FX Comedy series Better Things.
Better Things is a comedic autobiographical series similar in style to Louie – in fact Louis CK is part of the creative team behind it, alongside star Pamela Adlon. It centers on Sam (Adlon), a working actor with no filter trying to earn a living, navigate her daughters’ lives, have fun with a friend or two and also — just maybe — squeeze in some private time once in awhile.
Imrie will play Sam’s English mother she is described as a wonderful grandmother but a frustrating mother compounded by the fact that she only lives across the street. Celia Imrie is known for her roles in The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Bridget Jones Diary and Calendar Girls.
