Sheryl Lee Ralph (Instant Mom) has joined the second season cast of Amazon comedy series One Mississippi in a recurring role! She is joined by Carly Jibson (The Guest Book).

One Mississippi, created by Los Angeles radio host Tig Notaro and screenwriter Diablo Cody, follows Tig’s return to her hometown in Bay St. Lucille, Mississippi when her mother passes away unexpectedly. Recovering from both a double mastectomy and a C. difficile infection, Tig moves in temporarily alongside her brother Remy and her stepfather Bill. While caring for family affairs after Caroline’s death, Tig learns about her mother’s past as it was lived, rather than as Tig first remembered it, and in doing so rediscovers life in Bay St. Lucille.

Ralph will play Felicia Hollingsworth “a self-contained, rational, precise professional woman.”

Ralph starred on all three seasons of Nickelodeon comedy Instant Mom while also recurring on Ray Donovan for two seasons. She currently appears on Broadway as Madame Morrible in Wicked and recently wrapped Villa Capri opposite Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones. She’s repped by LINK Entertainment.

Congrats to Sheryl Lee Ralph! We look forward to seeing her shine in the second year!
