Actor Connie Britton is all set to make a comeback on the small screen with a comedy.

The 50-year-old actor, who stayed off television for more than six months after her exit from “Nashville”, will join Showtime’s forthcoming comedy “SMILF”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show is based on Frankie Shaw’s short film of the same name, which chronicles the life of a single, 20-something woman from Southie whose desires for relationships, sex and a career collide with the realities of young, single motherhood in a raw and honest comedic way.

Britton will appear in a multiple-episode recurring role as Ally, Bridgette’s (Shaw) boss, who struggles with boundaries and is constantly working on self-improvement.
