The series is about gorgeously impossible people, "Mrs. American Pie" follows Maxine Simmons’ (played by Wiig) attempt to secure her seat at America’s most exclusive table: Palm Beach high society. As Maxine attempts to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots, "Mrs. American Pie" asks the same questions that still baffle us today: “Who gets a seat at the table?” “How do you get a seat at the table?" "What will you sacrifice to get there?" Set during the powderkeg era of the early 1970s, "Mrs. American Pie" is a testament to every outsider fighting for their chance at superficial greatness.
Today we're learning that "Oscar and Emmy winner Allison Janney has been tapped to star alongside Kristen Wiig in Apple comedy series Mrs. American Pie, executive produced by Laura Dern. Janney will play Evelyn, a full-time Palm Beach resident and member of the high society. For more, read the full Deadline report.
