Tichina Arnold is heading back to network television. After finishing up a four year stint as the matriarch on “Everybody Hates Chris,” Tichina says she purposely took time off from work to be a fulltime mommy to her two children. However, after an almost two year hiatus, the 41 year old actress now says she is ready to get back to work and hopes her new pilot will help her do just that.
According to a recent interview, Tichina says she is in the process of shooting a comedy for TV Land that co-stars Rita Moreno and Fran Drescher (The Nanny). The show will be based on Drescher’s real life experience of re-entering the dating world after finding out her husband is gay. Moreno will play Drescher’s mother, while Arnold will play her best friend.
