Jaime Pressly Snags a CBS Comedy Pilot


The Emmy-winning actress has been tapped to play a Pittsburgh veterinarian in CBS's untitled pilot from How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. The project centers on an unmarried couple, Tommy (Kyle Bornheimer) and Gina, and their friends -- Pressly's vet will be Tommy's best friend. Unfortunately, this casting decision throws a wrench into Rules of Engagement star Patrick Warburton's plan for Pressly to become a regular on his CBS series if it is picked up for a fifth season.
