Pilot Scoop: Wendi McLendon-Covey Joins Adam Goldberg's ABC Comedy

The Cam-Pam rematch is on!

TVLine has learned exclusively that Bridesmaids funny lady Wendi McLendon-Covey will reprise her Modern Family role as Cam’s lesbian nemesis Pam later this season — but she’ll be without her better half, played by Michaela Watkins.

This time around, Cam and Claire recruit contractor Pam to assist them with their house renovation/flipping project. “I think Cam has some ideas about the restoration, and he’s fighting [about it] with Claire,” explains McLendon-Covey. “So they get Pam involved.

“We’ll see how my contracting skills are,” the actress adds with a laugh. “We’ll see how comfortable I look with a hammer in my hand!”

Also on deck for McLendon-Covey: A three-episode return to CBS’ Rules of Engagement, which kicks off its seventh season on Feb. 4.
