RAISING HOPE Lands Melanie Griffith and Tippi Hedren
July 31, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
Sabrina’s family is expanding on RAISING HOPE.
Just yesterday, news broke that Melanie Griffith was in talks to play Sabrina’s mother, Tamara. Now, not only has that deal been finalized, but Griffith’s real-life mother, Tippi Hedren, has signed on to play Sabrina’s grandmother, Nana. (Please, oh please, let there be some sort of scene with Hedren and Cloris Leachman’s Maw Maw.)
“As a fan of Melanie Griffith, the actress, I was excited about the possibility of having her on the show, and now that I’ve had the chance to meet Melanie Griffith, the person, I can’t wait to get the chance to work with her,” said Greg Garcia, creator and executive producer of RAISING HOPE in a statement. “And then Tippi Hedren agrees to play Melanie’s mother on the show? Are you kidding? Just two weeks ago, I showed my kids ‘The Birds’ for the first time. This is a very exciting way for us to start off Season Three.”
Um, I cannot wait to see how this plays out…
RAISING HOPE returns Tuesday, October 2nd at 8 PM on Fox.
