Brown’s Monica is described as “part haughty professor, part Nancy Drew.” As Olivia’s “brilliant, biting, and delightfully deadpan” sis, “she has everything Olivia has and everything Olivia wants – and never misses a chance to remind her.”

Brown joins Season 2 guest stars Peri Gilpin, who will recur as Dr. Crane’s former KACL sidekick Roz, and Kelsey Grammer’s real-life daughter, Greer Grammer, who will play Roz’s all-grown-up daughter Alice.
