PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Jenna Elfman is taking aim again at finding comedic success on television.
The actress best known for her hit ABC show "Dharma & Greg" that ran from 1997 to 2002 is back on the same network with "Imaginary Mary." Elfman plays a woman dating a man with children who relies on an imaginary friend voiced by Rachel Dratch of "Saturday Night Live" fame.
Elfman has had starring roles in six comedies since 1996-97. Only "Dharma & Greg" has lasted more than a single season.
Elfman says she's always looking for projects with writing that allows her to express herself in an authentic way.
Her latest role presents challenges similar to what Elfman faced in the 2003 movie "Looney Tunes: Back in Action," although the technology has been updated greatly since then.
"Imaginary Mary" is scheduled to debut on ABC and WDIO/WIRT at 7:30 p.m. Central time on Wednesday, March 29.
