Lynch "thrilled" to play liquor-loving "angel" in new CBS comedy

Just on the heels of wrapping "Glee," Jane Lynch stars alongside Maggie Lawson in the highly-anticipated comedy "Angel from Hell," making its debut on CBS' new fall lineup.

"Yeah, I guess I didn't know this would end up in front of me," Lynch said. "I was really thrilled and we were both saying this is the best pilot we've read in a long time."

Lynch is coming off a TV smash hit, but said she doesn't feel any extra pressure.

"I don't think about that stuff at all. I mean I'll have a fleeting thought and someone might ask me that question, but no I don't," she said. "You just, you do the work and you show up every day and have fun and that's what we did with this pilot we just showed up and had a blast."

Lynch plays Amy, a loud-mouth, liquor-loving woman who thinks she's a guardian angel sent to stop Allison, an intense, type-A doctor, played by Lawson, from going down the wrong path.

"I think that concept is just really cool," Lawson said. "I think that we could all use a little crazy now and again, you know, to just sort of intervene and turn everything on its head and just wake up a little bit and I think that idea is really cool, especially in the form of Jane Lynch."

"Angel from Hell" airs Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET, starting in November
