A Younger woman is going to the dogs.
Sutton Foster, who stars in the TV Land dramedy, has booked a guest-starring role on Amazon’s forthcoming Mad Dogs, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The hour-long dark comedy, adapted from the British series of the same name, follows a group of underachieving fortysomething friends who gather in Belize to celebrate an early retirement. When wild events start to unfold, secrets are revealed — and someone dies.
Foster will play Gerda, who is described as “a stubborn and fierce Mennonite wife gone rogue.” She’ll be around for at least one episode.
An irreverent, daring and wickedly-fun horror comedy, GRAVY walks a perfect line of tension and release, laughs and scares. It’s Halloween night. A trio of costumed misfits with very special dietary requirements seizes a Mexican cantina and force the staff to engage in a late night of gluttony. The only caveat is what’s on the menu…and who will survive til morning!
Sutton Foster is part of the ensemble cast of James Roday’s crazy dark comedy ‘Gravy’, which opens in select cinemas in Los Angeles and New York on October 2 and will debut on VOD October 6. Check out the first official trailer below!

Donnell will perform a duet with Foster, in addition to “On the Streets of Dublin,” from Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s A Man of No Importance. The concert is sponsored by Morgan Stanley and Reed Smith.

Welcome back to the Hamptons!
I love it out here. I did a concert in Sag Harbor a couple of years ago and have been to the Hamptons maybe a handful of times. I think my favorite thing that I have done is go to the yard sales. I found some great stuff.
What are some of your other favorite summer activities?
I’m a beach girl. I grew up going to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, every summer. My family is from the South, so I could spend every day just lying on the beach, reading, and be perfectly happy. I love barbecuing and cooking—corn, watermelon, burgers —anything on the grill.
[About Gimme Gimme on The Rosie O’Donnell Show] You know what’s crazy? We did that during previews, and honestly my voice was so fried that I couldn’t even get through the sound check of the song. I didn’t have the technique or stamina yet for eight-shows-a-week—I was so green and so new. I remember my voice teacher Joan Lader warmed me up on the phone before because I couldn’t hit any of the big notes during sound check. I thought, ‘This is going to be a disaster. I’m going to be flat on national television.’
