Hello JoAnna fans, and happy new years! I hope the year has started off well for you all. It sure has for our girl; Variety just announced that she has been signed on for a new ABC pilot titled “Happy Accident”! You can read more about the upcoming pilot below, and I will update you as soon as new information is released. I’d really love to see JoAnna in another comedy again, so let’s cross our fingers and hope that the show will be picked up…

VARIETY – JoAnna Garcia Swisher has signed on for a leading role in the ABC single-camera comedy pilot “Happy Accident,” Variety has learned.

She joins previously announced cast member Matt Walsh. The show follows two Pittsburgh families – father Bud (Walsh) with three adult daughters, and a hotel lounge singer with her med student son – are forced together after a decades-old secret is revealed. Garcia Swisher will play Eleanor Bennett, a professor at Pitt who is also Bud’s oldest daughter.

The casting continues Garcia Swisher’s long relationship with ABC. She has previously starred in ABC shows like “Once Upon a Time,” “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World,” and “The Astronaut Wives Club.” She is also known for roles in shows like “Reba,” “Are You Afraid of the Dark?,” and “Animal Practice.” On the film side, she has held roles in projects like “Not Another Teen Movie,” “Fist Fight,” and “The Internship.” She is repped by UTA and John Carrabino Management.

Abraham Higginbotham and Jon Pollack, both of whom are writers on “Modern Family,” are the writers and executive producers on “Happy Accident.” 20th Century Fox Television will produce along with ABC Studios. Both Higginbotham and Pollack are writers on the hit ABC series “Modern Family” and are under overall deals at 20th TV.

A couple of months ago, JoAnna launched a new website titled “The Happy Place”! It’s a project she’s been working on for a long time, a website where she will share her passion for interior through inspirational photos and helpful guides, as well as insight into the things in life which makes her happy. The website already have several great posts, and is a must check out for all her fans! You can find the full site over here, and make sure to subscribe if you want alerts whenever JoAnna updates the site. She also has a new instagram for the project, which you can check out over at the handle @thehappyplacepresents! I have updated our gallery with some of the beautiful new JoAnna photos found at the site, but you should make sure to pay the website a visit and browse it in full as well. In addition to all the great inspo-pics, there’s a lot of really stunning snaps of JoAnna!

At it’s core, The Happy Place will ignite and inspire the inner designer in every one of us. We all have a deep personal connection to the place we call “home” and we share a common desire to curate our best life. It doesn’t mean you have to be knowledgable, savvy or even interested in design. The Happy Place is a destination that explores, motivates and empowers the experience of living a life with intention and how that reflects in your interiors. I not only look forward to sharing what The Happy Place means to me, but I’m even more excited to help cultivate what The Happy Place means to you! Xx, Jo

Firstly, welcome back to JoAnna Garcia Online! I deleted the site back in May after struggling to find the motivation needed to run fansites for a long time. After a long summer, my motivation has finally returned, and so has JoAnna Garcia Online! I won’t bore you with anymore details about our site’s time offline, but rather get straight back to updating: while we were closed, JoAnna attended a total of 5 events – the series wrap party of “Once Upon a Time” in May, the GENERAL PUBLIC x RH Celebration and 1st Annual Environmental Media Association Honors Benefit Gala in June, the EW’s Pre-Emmy Party on the 15th this month, and the St.Jude Walk/Run Hosted By Lucy Hale this previous Saturday. Photos from all four happenings (in high quality) can be found in our gallery! JoAnna looks so beautiful at all of these events, so make sure you dive in and start browsing our new additions.

Hello JoAnna fans! After a couple of months of downtime (I needed to work some things out, I apologize for that), JoAnna Garcia Online is finally back. While the site was down, JoAnna’s new show “Kevin (Probably) Saves The World” aired on ABC!

While we wait for news, our gallery has now been updated with HD screen captures from all the 16 episodes in season 1! Enjoy.

Our very own JoAnna is featured in the October 23rd issue of People Magazine! We have both magazine scans and her photoshoot for you. In the issue, JoAnna showcases her house – make sure to pick up a copy if you can.

Nothing Is ‘Too Precious’ at JoAnna Garcia Swisher’s Laid-Back House in L.A.: ‘If You Can’t Live in the Home That You’re in, Then What’s the Point?’ “My big white couch is certainly not without its stains,” the actress admits.

JoAnna Garcia Swisher and her husband, Nick Swisher, 36, were on the hunt for a family-friendly space for their daughters Emerson, 4, and Sailor, 1, and finally came across this this early 20th-century Los Angeles home. The six-bedroom, six-bathroom house now caters to both their children’s needs and their busy social calendars. “Come 4 o’clock there’s usually a friend or two that comes around for a glass of wine or a meal – we’re always cooking or watching sports of some capacity,” the actress, 38, says. “We love having people around.”

Garcia Swisher’s former pro baseball player husband painted the magentic chalkboard wall in the kitchen. “He’s really proud of it,” she says of the display that hosts colorful homemade artwork. | Read the rest at People .

Yesterday, JoAnna was a guest at MTV’s TRL! She talked about ‘Kevin (Probably) Saves The World‘, and participated in a dramatic reading of celebrity tweets. JoAnna read a tweet by Chrissy Teigen, and it’s an absolute must see! Check out the videos of her appearance below, and stay tuned for photos later today.

MTV | We didn’t know that acting out tweets could be so much fun until JoAnna Garcia Swisher came through TRL. The actress (and former Are You Afraid Of The Dark cast member) played Master Tweet Theater with DC Young Fly and Matt Rife and it was honestly one of the best moments ever. Oddly enough, Matt was almost too good when he portrayed an Instagram model while reciting a Lil Uzi Vert tweet. Joanna’s impression of a reality TV star doing a Chrissy Teigen rant about people lining up to pee on airplanes was spot-on, and then DC channeling his inner preacher for a Lil Yachty reading had us in tears.

JoAnna also told us about her new show Kevin (Probably) Saves the World and what it was like to witness her co-star Jason Ritter earn the title for the high-speed hugging record in the Guinness World Records. Watch the interview go down in the video below. TRL airs on weekdays at 3:30pm ET!
