Multiple outlets report tonight that the iconic television star will star in an ABC comedy called Household Name. Executive produced by Amy Poehler (Parks & Recreation) and Michael Saltzman (Halt and Catch Fire), the comedy received a pilot order from the network. Burnett also serves as executive producer in addition to starring. The setup reads as such: a family wants to buy the house of their dreams, but they must live with the previous owner, a brassy actress played by Burnett.
Burnett received 22 Emmy nominations over her career, winning 6. She’s most famous for The Carol Burnett Show which ran 11 years. That show won best variety-comedy series Emmys three times. She excels for her tremendous take on Gone With the Wind. She also does a mean Gloria Swanson. Both skits are included below.
