Gabourey Sidibe Joins Showtime's 'The Big C'

Yesterday, Showtime - an American premium cable network that gave us shows like Dexter and Californication - announced that Oscar® Nominee Gabourey Sidibe (Precious) will be a recurring guest star in the upcoming half-hour dark comedy The Big C.

In this dark comedy, Sidibe will play a smart-alecky student whose teacher is the character played by Laura Linney, the show's leading actress.

In this TV series, we follow Cathy (Laura Linney), a reserved suburban wife and mother whose recent cancer diagnosis forces her to shake up her life. Besides, Cathy tries to find hope, humour and the light side of a dark situation, while managing her immature but well-meaning husband (Oliver Platt).

Finally, The Big C, which was created by Darlene Hunt, will begin shooting its 13 episodes in May.
