The series is executive produced by and stars Leggero and Riki Lindhome as Rhode Island socialites in 1902. Another Period received a 10-episode series order from Comedy Central earlier this summer.
Hendricks will play Chair, a new servant on the estate who is not who she appears to be. The Emmy-nominated star will appear in just an arc of episodes of the 10-episode first season. The show features a well-rounded cast of comedy actors including David Koechner, Brian Huskey, David Wain, Moshe Kasher and Lauren Ash. Riki Lindhome has already seen success at IFC with her sitcom Garfunkel and Oates with musical comedy cohort Kate Micucci, which is currently in its first season.
