Reiner, who starred in 2007's miniseries The Starter Wife, will be reprising her role on the network series this fall. Basche, also a regular cast member on NBC's Lipstick Jungle, will be joining the cast opposite Debra Messing as her character's ex-husband, Kenny Kagan.
Basche and Reiner first met during a summer theater program in Vermont several years ago. "The script said fall in love," says Bashe. "You don't argue with Shakespeare!"
