“I was fully prepared to take a break, until I read the script and it was too good to pass up,” Hannigan told Variety at UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation’s “Taste For a Cure” event Friday night at the Beverly Wilshire.
“I just loved it so much. It was too good to be true, like by page nine I was like, ‘All right, you know, so the break was shorter than I thought.’”
“More Time With Family” stars Tom Papa as a husband and father who decides to quit his job so he can spend more time with his family.
Hannigan said the CBS pilot is based on real family stories, including Damon’s.
“Every story is genuinely from somebody’s family. You can tell because it’s so relatable and that’s what I really loved,” she said. “All of these characters have such an authentic voice.”
