Hines has already had some experience playing a politico, albeit a more right-leaning one. The 'Waitress' actress recently completed a guest-starring arc on 'Brothers & Sisters' as Buffy, the manipulative and short-lived campaign manager to Calista Flockhart's Republican office-seeking Kitty Walker McAllister.

Actress, author and once and forever Princess Leia Carrie Fisher recently lent her comedic chops as a guest-star on TV shows such as '30 Rock,' 'Weeds' and 'Family Guy.'

The 'Wright vs. Wrong' pilot, written by Stephanie Weir ('MadTV') also stars Patrick Fugit, best known as the wide-eyed journalist in Cameron Crowe's 'Almost Famous.'

What do you think, comedy fans? Does the formidable Messing-Hines-Fisher combination pack the 'Wright' political punch?
