Role Description

Holly Warner: (Supporting) the wife of Ted Warner, host of "The Final Word" (think "The O'Reilly Factor), it is a May-December romance, mother to their son Brandon, while Ted likes to preach family values and brags about being home with the family, the fact is he is rarely around and it's Holly who does everything, not unlike the long-suffering wife of a politician who must always be supportive and provide a shoulder to cry on, but who must remain behind the scenes for the most part, has dealt with her fair share of problems in the marriage (infidelity for sure), but her traditional and strict Catholic upbringing has played a major role in her willingness to stay and try to work things out.

Holly Sides

HOLLY (O.S.)
Ugh, we had quite the adventure
today. The lugs on the back tire
nearly fell off as we were driving
back home on twenty-two. And of *
course, there’s no cell phone *
reception. But luckily there was a
nice young couple behind us who
were able to help us out. It took
forever, but the woman was really
good at keeping Brandon occupied. *
TED
Wait, this couple, what did they
look like?
HOLLY (O.S.)
I don’t know, what does that
matter?
TED
Shut up! Did you get their number
or their license plate or anything?
HOLLY (O.S.)
What is your problem? No. Look, *
if you want to get them a gift or
something don’t bother. I tried
giving the guy a fifty, but he said
they were fans of yours and just
happy to help out. Jeeze, you’re
in a mood. Tough day today?
(beat)
Oh that’s right! You had that big
guest on today, I was hoping to get
home in time to see it, but --
HOLLY (O.S.) (CONT’D)
No. How did it go?
TED
(relieved)
It was fine sweetie. There’s just *
something we should talk about when *
I get home, do me a favor -- *
HOLLY (O.S.)
Oh I’m sure it wasn’t that bad. *
Well I set the DVR, so I’ll watch
it as soon as I get back, then we *
can discuss! Oh, someone wants to *
say hi.
