Felicity Huffman has signed on for her first TV role since serving time in prison for her part in the college admissions scandal.
However, the 57-year-old is moving forward and has landed the lead role in a new baseball-inspired comedy.
According to Deadline, the star has signed up for a single-camera comedy inspired by Susan Savage, the real-life owner of the Sacramento River Cats, a Triple-A baseball team.
Described as a ‘funny, surprising and occasionally heartbreaking half-hour about love, loss, family and Triple-A baseball,’ the currently untitled series will follow a woman who suddenly loses her husband and inherits his minor league baseball team.
She attempts to brave this new world with the help of her family (including her baseball-loving son with Down syndrome, played by The Peanut Butter Falcon’s Zack Gottsagen), her new staff, and the Sacramento community at large.

The show has a pilot production commitment from ABC and was written by Becky Hartman Edwards, who previously wrote for Switched at Birth, American Dreams and worked as a co-executive producer on Fox’s Pitch.
It is an exciting way to end the year after the star was publicly humiliated by the revelation she had paid $15,000 to have someone take the SAT in place of her older daughter, Sophia.
As well as serving time in jail, the When They See Us actress also paid a $30,000 fine and spent one year on supervised release.
