Parks and Recreation vet Retta is making her way back to network television, having joined ABC's new comedy pilot Hail Mary, starring Casey Wilson.

Going back to her Happy Endings roots, Wilson will play Mary Wolf, the mayor of a nearly bankrupt small town who's caught in the middle of her dysfunctional siblings, ailing father, disgruntled citizens—and the mafia.

Retta will play Mary's friend Ruthie in the single-camera comedy, which is based on David Schalko's Australian comedy Braunschlag.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Retta has had a busy pilot season, fielding "multiple pilot offers" this year.
