New to the CBS lineup, “Angel From Hell” is a comedy about Amy, played by Emmy winner Jane Lynch, a colorful, brassy woman who insinuates herself into the life of an organized and seemingly perfect young woman, Allison (Maggie Lawson), claiming to be her “guardian angel.”

“Amy is messy and Allison is not,” Lynch says of her character. “She doesn’t have any boundaries, all she has is infinite love for this one (Allison) and a great desire for this one to actually break out of her cage and live the life that she was meant to live.”

Allison is an intense, driven doctor who is sure that Amy is just an inebriated, outspoken nut, until every one of her warnings proves true. As Allison tries to push Amy away, Amy makes her final pitch: her sole mission is to provide Allison with helpful guidance that nudges her in the right direction in life – and it’s her final chance to prove herself as an angel. With that, Allison agrees to this unlikely relationship because maybe a weird friend is exactly what she needs.

STARRING: Jane Lynch (Amy), Maggie Lawson (Allison), Kevin Pollak (Marv) and Kyle Bornheimer (Brad)
