Sometimes Joey King is a teen who just wants to make out with her best friend's brother in The Kissing Booth. Sometimes she's a victim of a serious case of Munchausen's by Proxy in The Act. And sometimes she's a foul-mouthed pregnant teen who might make a couple's dreams come true, despite her...quirks.
King is guest-starring on CBS' Life in Pieces as the 17 year-old prospective birthmother to Colleen (Angelique Cabral) and Matt (Thomas Sadoski), and E! News has your exclusive first look at King's first appearance as Morgan in the clip above. She may not make the best first impression, but Colleen and Matt are doing their best to not care very much, even as they discover that she refers to her mom as her "basic B," and that Morgan and her mom share an ex-boyfriend. These are totally regular things!
We'll meet Morgan in the second of two episodes airing this Thursday as Matt and Colleen compete against another rich, swanky couple for Morgan's approval to adopt her baby.
In the first episode, called "Jungle Push Resort Anniversary," the Short family arrives at their vacation resort in the Yucatan and discovers that their accommodations aren't quite what they expected. Heather (Betsy Brandt) gets super overprotective of Sophia (Giselle Eisenberg), Jen (Zoe Lister-Jones) and Greg (Colin Hanks) discover that Matt and Colleen have been duping everyone, and John (James Brolin) and Joan (Dianne Wiest) get separated from the tour group in the jungle.
The second episode of the night is called "Demo Nosebreath Surgery Match," and while Matt and Colleen compete to impress Morgan, Jen's pregnancy takes a toll on Greg, Heather lets John take credit for her housekeeping while Joan recovers from knee surgery, and Tim (Dan Bakkedahl) arranges for Tyler (Niall Cunningham) to record a demo at a friend's studio.
The first episode premieres Thursday, April 18 at 8:30 p.m., and the second episode, featuring King's debut, airs at 9:30 p.m. on CBS.
King is currently starring in The Act on Hulu and preparing for The Kissing Booth 2 on Netflix. Her sister Hunter King stars on Life in Pieces as Clementine.
