Glee grad Heather Morris will look to make beautiful music with So Help Me Todd‘s titular investigator when she boards the CBS dramedy for Season 2.
Starring Skylar Astin in the title role, So Help Me Todd follows a disgraced-but-lovable private detective who works to repair his damaged career — with extremely mixed results — by assisting with major cases at his mother’s (Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden) law firm. The series’ cast also includes Madeline Wise as Todd’s sister Allison, Tristen J. Winger as investigator Lyle, Inga Schlingmann as Todd’s lawyerly ex-girlfriend Susan and Rosa Evangelina Arredondo as Margaret’s assistant Francey.
