Trial & Error

She appeared as Summer Henderson, the daughter of Larry Henderson who later joins Josh’s team in the American sitcom television series Trial & Error. Like Josh, she is serious and the least illogical member of the group. The series is a comic legal mockumentary about Josh Segal, a young bright-eyed New York lawyer who relocates to the imaginary, small Southern town of East Peck, South Carolina, with an unusual defense team that solves cases from behind a taxidermy store.

In the first season, they defend Larry Henderson, a compulsively eccentric poetry professor who is accused of the strange murder of his loving wife. The case becomes complicated since his client is always making himself appear guilty. The second season, dubbed “Lady, Killer,” focuses on the defense of Lavinia Peck-Foster, the town’s beloved debutante who has been accused of killing her husband. The prosecutor on each case is assistant DA Carol Anne Keane, a young lawyer who wants to use the cases to boost her image and with whom Josh has had intermittent sexual meetings.


She appeared as Ms. Crumble, Glendale High’s former biology teacher in the American post-apocalyptic comedy-drama television series Daybreak. She is part Ghoulie and retains the most of her mind, despite being like a crazy homeless lady.The series tells the narrative of Josh Wheeler, a 17-year-old Canadian high school outcast looking for his lost British girlfriend Sam Dean in post-apocalyptic Glendale, California.

He is accompanied by a motley crew of outcasts, including 10-year-old pyromaniac Angelica and Josh’s former high school bully Wesley, who is now a pacifist wannabe samurai. Josh has to survive among armies of Mad Max-style gangs (bad jocks, cheerleaders turned Amazonian warriors, and so on), people who have transformed into zombie-like creatures known as Ghoulies, and the enigmatic Baron Triumph. Turbo, the jocks’ leader, does nothing to improve the situation; his horrible leadership and sadism endangers the remaining survivors.


She appeared as Ana Vargas, Karen’s new roommate who is looking for her big break in the Season 2 of American musical drama television series Smash. The plot revolves around a group of individuals working on new Broadway musicals, where everyone must combine their often tumultuous personal lives with the all-consuming demands of life in the theater. Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman composed the series’ original music.
