Tichina Arnold to Play Fran Drescher's Best Friend In TV Land's 'Happily Divorced'

Comments (11)


Tichina Arnold will join Rita Moreno and Robert Walden in TV Land's comedy pilot 'Happily Divorced,' starring Fran Drescher, states Deadline.com.

Based on her real life, Drescher plays a woman who re-enters the dating world after finding out that her husband is gay. It focuses on how she juggles her relationship with her current boyfriend and ex-husband post-divorce. Moreno and Walden will play her parents, while Arnold stars as Drescher's best friend.

Arnold, a native of Queens, N.Y., is known for her roles as Pamela James on the Fox sitcom 'Martin' and the family matriarch Rochelle on the UPN/CW sitcom 'Everybody Hates Chris,' which ended its run in 2009 after four seasons.

Recently released on home video is Arnold's latest film, 'The Lena Baker Story,' which is based on the true story of an impoverished and uneducated African American woman's struggles in rural 1940s Georgia.

Convicted and sentenced for the accidental killing of Elliot Arthur, the tyrannical, pistol-packing white man she was hired to care for – in a trial and deliberation that together lasted less than four hours – Baker was only 44 years old when she died in 1945, the only woman to be sentenced to death by electric chair in the state of Georgia.

'Happily' Divorced' is being co-written and executive produced by Drescher and her ex-husband, 'The Nanny's co-creator Peter Marc Jacobson.

In late 2010, Arnold appeared on 'The Fran Drescher Show,' where she talked about life after 'Everybody Hates Chris' and being a single parent.
