Judith Light Books ABC Comedy Pilot Based on Henry Winkler's Life


She was the "boss" on a hit ABC laffer three decades ago. Now Judith Light is returning to the world of situation comedies.

The One Life to Live and Who's The Boss? alum—currently enjoying a second season playing a coke-snorting, brothel-running, shipping tycoon on TNT's Dallas— has been cast in ABC's comedy pilot The Winklers. Based on the real-life of Happy Days legend Henry Winkler, The Winklers is a father-in-law/son-in-law buddy comedy. Light is set to play Winkler's wife. Deadline broke the casting news.
