Felicity Huffman is getting back to work.

Felicity Huffman will make her return to acting after a prison spell to front a new baseball TV comedy. Huffman will be playing a character named Susan Savage along with her co-star Zack Gottsagen from the movie The Peanut Butter Falcon.

Huffman is set to star in a still untitled single-camera comedy written by Becky Hartman Edwards and produced by Aaron Kaplan's Kapital Entertainment.

According to Deadline, many in Hollywood seem unbothered by Huffman's involvement in the college admission scandal, as the actress has been heavily courted for new series and pilots ever since she finished her two-week prison sentence.

The actress plead guilty to charges of mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in May 2019 and completed her sentence in October.

The "Desperate Housewives" actress, who was caught up in the infamous college admissions scandal and ended up serving 11 days out of her 14-day sentence in prison due to her involvement, has reportedly landed her first acting gig since her release from FCI Dublin a year ago. Huffman admitted to paying $15,000 to have an SAT proctor administer her daughter's exam.

Actress Lori Loughlin is now serving a two-month prison sentence for her role in the scandal, and her husband Mossimo Gianniulli is now serving five months.
