Former Twisted star Denise Richards is headed to The CW to make an appearance in their new comedy Significant Mother.
Significant Mother is a new CW comedy that explores an extremely awkward situation: What if you came home to find your mother and your best friend were dating??? Unfortunately that’s the predicament that Nate (Josh Zuckerman) finds himself in when he returns from a business trip.
TVLine was the first to report that Richards will be appearing on the show as Pepper Spinner, a “notorious cougar” and long-time rival of Nate’s mom. Pepper somehow ends up on a date with Josh and hilarity ensues.
You can read a full description of the show, per The CW, below:
Budding Portland restaurateur Nate’s (Josh Zuckerman) world is turned upside down when he comes back from a business trip to find his lothario best friend and roommate, Jimmy, is now dating his recently separated mother, Lydia (Krista Allen). To make matters worse, Nate’s previously disinterested dad, Harrison (Jonathan Silverman) is now determined to win Lydia back and isn’t afraid to use Nate to get what he wants. Stuck between his family feud and his best friend’s first serious relationship, Nate’s “new normal” forever changes his relationships with his parents, and severely handicaps his own dating life.
Significant Mother premieres Aug. 3 (9:30/8:30c). Richards’ episode airs Aug. 10.
