Tim Meadows, Paula Newsome in 'Suburgatory'


The small suburban town of Chatswin is about to become a little more diverse with the introduction of a new family.

Tim Meadows and Paula Newsome have landed roles in the upcoming second season of ABC’s comedy series “Suburgatory,” TVGuide.com has learned.

“Suburgatory” follows the life of a Tessa, a teenage girl who moves from the big city to an upper middle class suburb filled with interesting characters, including a “diversity” student named Malik–the only black student who attends her new school.

Meadows will play Edmond, Malik’s (Maestro Harrell) father. He will be joined by Newsome, who has been cast as Tracy, the wife and mother.

Meadow’s character is describe as “the strong patriarch of a close-knit family who moved to Chatswin for the schools, not the people.” His backstory comes with some baggage as well—he blames himself for the childhood death of his younger brother.

Don’t expect to see them anytime soon, both Meadows and Newsome, will appear in the seventh and eighth episodes of the upcoming season.

Meadows currently stars as Principal Theodore Martin on CW’s “Mr. Box Office.” His previous television credits include “SNL” and “Leap of Faith.” Newsome recently appeared in an episode of CBS’ “NCIS.” Her past credits include “Women’s Murder Club” and “NYPD Blue.”

“Suburgatory” returns on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.
