USA Network Sitcom Playing House Returns Aug. 4 with Guests; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 22, 2015)

Playing House

Drew and Jonathan Scott, stars of HGTV's Property Brothers, have been tapped to guest star in the second season of USA Network's critically-acclaimed half-hour comedy series Playing House. The Scott brothers will appear as themselves to remake Maggie Caruso's (Lennon Parham) body into the 'hottest property on the market.' The episode featuring the brothers will air as part of the back-to-back episode season two premiere of Playing House on Tuesday, August 4 beginning at 10/9c. The critically acclaimed comedy Playing House returns for a season two with an innovative windowing structure that, each week, will allow viewers to preview next week's episode on their Video-On-Demand platforms. Childhood best friends Maggie Caruso (Lennon Parham) and Emma Crawford (Jessica St. Clair) are in store for one of their biggest adventures yet - raising a baby. This season, Maggie and Emma navigate their way through life as co-parents to Maggie's daughter Charlotte. The colorful residents of Pinebrook, CT also return including Emma's first love Mark (Keegan Michael Key) and her eccentric mom, Gwen (Jane Kaczmarek).
