Tony-award winning actress and “Who’s the Boss” alum Judith Light is reprising her role as Kristen Johnston‘s character Holly Franklin’s overly critical mother Marjorie. But this time the perfect sister is coming to town too.

Amanda Detmer (“Necessary Roughness,” “Man Up”) joins the show as Jill, Holly’s sister who can do no wrong. Holly of course pulls out all the stops to prove her life is also perfect, but when Marjorie shows up, all the family truths come out.

“The Exes” also welcomes “Top Chef” winner Michael Voltaggio for the Aug. 15 episode. The TV Land series stars Donald Faison and Wayne Knight as roommates and Johnston as their landlord and divorce attorney. It airs Wednesday nights at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
