  • 17comments

Joey costar Andrea Anders is not waiting for the axe to fall on the NBC sitcom, which is on hiatus and not expected to return for a third season.

Instead, she has joined the cast of CBS' comedy series The Class.

The action begins with a party thrown by 27-year-old Ethan (Jason Ritter) for his girlfriend, whom he met in the third grade. Ethan invites six other people who were in the class with them, all of whom have lost touch with one another. The party then becomes the springboard for following how the lives of the reunited characters continue to intersect.

Anders and Jay Bernthal will play two of the schoolmates, who were high school sweethearts. Also cast is Heather Goldenhersh (Kinsey).

In Joey, Anders plays the sweet neighbor of the Matt LeBlanc's title character.
