Jane Lynch Guest Starring in "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel"

Emmy and Golden Globe-winner Jane Lynch has signed on to for a guest-starring role in Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino's upcoming Amazon Original Series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Lynch will play Sophie Lennon, the most famous female comic of her time, who plays sold out shows and has been a popular fixture on radio and TV for years.

Greenlit for two seasons on Amazon Prime Video, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is written and directed by the Palladinos, stars Rachel Brosnahan (House of Cards) as Miriam "Midge" Maisel, a 1958 New York City woman who has everything she's ever wanted - the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment perfect for hosting Yom Kippur dinner. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent - one that changes her life forever. She charts a course that takes her from her comfortable life on Riverside Drive, through the basket houses and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she storms the world of stand-up comedy... a course that will ultimately lead her to a spot on Johnny Carson's couch.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel also stars Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire) as Midge's husband Joel Maisel, Alex Borstein (Family Guy) as Susie Myerson, Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk) as Midge's father Abe Weissman, and Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men) as Midge's mother Rose Weissman.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel pilot, currently available for all Amazon customers at amazon.com/originals, has garnered an average customer rating of 4.9, with 93% 5-star reviews.

Jane Lynch was raised near Chicago and cut her theatrical teeth at The Second City and Steppenwolf Theatre. She is the two-time Emmy winning host of Hollywood Game Night and an Emmy and Golden Globe winner for her portrayal of Sue Sylvester on Glee. She will be seen this fall portraying Janet Reno in Manifesto. Additional television credits include Criminal Minds, The Good Fight, Portlandia, Angel From Hell, Party Down, Lovespring International, Two and a Half Men, and The L Word. Lynch's film credits include Mascots, both Wreck It Ralph I and II, Afternoon Delight, The Three Stooges, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Talladega Nights, Julie & Julia, A Mighty Wind, Best In Show, and For Your Consideration.
