The Big C has gotten a big order from Showtime.
The Big C — originally titled The C Word — stars the 45-year-old three-time Emmy winner as a suburban mother who attempts to find humor in her cancer diagnosis. Linney will also serve as executive producer of the series, which will feature Oliver Platt.
Linney last appeared on the small screen in the Emmy-winning HBO miniseries John Adams as wife Abigail Adams.
