Maggie Lawson has been set as the female lead in Geniuses.
The Fox comedy pilot hails from Lon Zimmet. Zimmet will write and executive produce the multi-camera comedy pilot about a blue-collar couple in South Jersey trying to get by while raising four kids, three of whom just happen to be certified geniuses.
According to Deadline, Lawson will play Cay, the mom and clear boss of the family. A Jersey girl, she’s intuitive with a strong nose for BS, which definitely comes in handy at her job as a pit boss at an Atlantic City casino.
Lawson’s other credits include Fox’s Lethal Weapon, The Ranch and Santa Clarita Diet. She also starred as Juliet O’Hara on Psych: The Movie and set to star in the forthcoming follow up Psych: The Movie 2.
