Carra Patterson cast in lead role of Patty’s Auto
According to Deadline, Carra Patterson (The Arrangement) will headline the Fox multi-camera comedy Patty’s Auto alongside Sarah Levy (Schitt’s Creek), Paola Lázaro (Lethal Weapon) and Joanna Adler (American Crime Story).
The show hails from The Big C creator Darlene Hunt, Elizabeth Banks & Max Handelman’s Brownstone Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
Betsy Thomas will direct the pilot and co-executive produce from a script by Hunt that focuses on a female auto repair shop based out of Pennsylvania, and their day-and-day misadventures. The main character, Patty, plated by Patterson, owns the shop; and, after growing up poor under the guidance of a single mother, vows to empower her female employees.
Levy will play Jenna, a vulnerable and insecure service technician; Lazaro will play Liza, a service technician from Puerto Rico; and Adler will play Chyna, the shop teacher who taught and mentored Patty.
