The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend alum is set to return to TV, signing on for the pilot that takes a modern-day, comedic spin on the biblical story of Mary. Mother Mary is based on an Upright Citizens Brigade web series from Casey Feigh and Dan Grego, a writer, consulting producer and one-time actor on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. They're writing the pilot with Betsy Sodaro, who will take on the role of Mary. "Mother Mary will explore what happens when the most irresponsible and lazy human on Earth was impregnated by immaculate conception," per The Hollywood Reporter. "Sodaro stars as a reimagined version of Mary, and Bloom will appear in the pilot as Christa Anton, the mother of the Antichrist." Pop TV's Justin Rosenblatt adds: "The overall production deal we have with the Devil hasn't born any fruit to date, but when he pitched this show with Rachel Bloom attached, we just couldn't say no. We think Mother Mary is a clever comedy that offers a lot of life lessons that are filled with heart through smart storytelling imparted through Betsy's hilarious and irreverent sense of humor."
