Winnie Cooper becomes Inspector Mom

danica mckellarI realize that Danica McKellar is probably sick to death of being called 'Winnie Cooper', but how else was I supposed to get your attention? The actress, famously known for her role on The Wonder Years, will star in a funky online/broadcast experiment for LMN television, a sister network of Lifetime. McKellar will play the title role in Inspector Mom, a movie about a stay-at-home mother who bakes cookies, runs a carpool, and chases down criminals. She's either a 30-something Veronica Mars, or a 30-something Jessica Fletcher.

Here's where it gets funky:

The movie version of Inspector Mom airs on November 18th at 8 pm. Then the mystery moves to the internet, LMN.tv, where 8 short video segments will be released through April.

Dear Lord, I'm going to start digging my own grave if Danica McKellar's old enough to be playing a mom.

I'm kind of surprised she's still into acting since she's a braniac math-whiz. I thought she'd get into a more scientific field. If I thought I had a snowball's chance in hell of understanding it, I'd try and read her published math proof, but it's hard enough to say "Percolation and Gibbs states multiplicity for ferromagnetic Ashkin-Teller models on Z2", much less know what the hell it means!

It sounds like a really sad comeback role.

I liked this show the first time I saw it, when it was called Mom, PI.
