Felicity Huffman lands her first acting role since prison term

Felicity Huffman is making her return to acting after serving out her prison sentence for her involvement in the 2019 college admissions scandal.

The 57-year-old Desperate Housewives actress-  who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud after paying $15,000 to rig her daughter’s SAT test – has now landed a role in an untitled ABC comedy.

After serving 11 days of a two week prison sentence and enduring a year of supervised release, Huffman has reportedly been sought after for a handful of projects, including her upcoming role in the comedy series which is inspired by real life minor league baseball team owner Susan Savage.

Based on the life of the owner of Triple-A baseball team The Sacramento River Cats, Huffman will play Savage who becomes an unlikely baseball team owner after losing her husband and inheriting the team.
