Regina King Gets Role on ABC Pilot “Divorce”

By//Jessica Paris

While TNT’s Southland is stuck in limbo awaiting the green light for a sixth season, the show’s star Regina King has made a backup plan in case things don’t work out. King reportedly just signed on to co-star on ABC’s new comedy pilot Divorce: A Love Story. The show centers around a recently divorced couple that can’t seem to live with or without each other. King will play Cassandra, the “diva-wife” of Ike, the main character’s best friend.

While King says Divorce will come second if Southland is renewed, critics are saying don’t hold your breath on a new season. Either way it’ll be nice to have Regina on our TV screens again.
