FOX 4’s Amy Wegmann gets enlisted in ‘Army Wives’
FOX 4 News anchor and reporter Amy Wegmann will have a role in the award-winning Lifetime Television Series, “Army Wives.”
The episode is set to air this Sunday, May 29. Wegmann shot the episode two months ago while on location in Charleston, S.C.
“It was a great experience,” said Wegmann. “I have about six lines in the episode. The scene is very intense within the storyline. I had a blast!”
The character role as a reporter wasn’t much of a stretch for a veteran journalist.
“I can’t give away anything, but yes, you’ll see me with mic-in-hand, reporting from a dramatic scene of breaking news,” she added.
The Lifetime TV Series, “Army Wives,” is a drama. The show follows the lives of several Army wives and their families, through the ups and downs that come with military life. It features big name stars like Kim Delaney, best known for her role as a detective on “NYPD Blue,” and Catherine Bell, from the TV show “JAG” and the movie, “Bruce Almighty.”
Wegmann could not pass up the opportunity to appear on the show, considering she’s a huge fan. She says she’s been watching “Army Wives” since the first season aired in 2007, adding she “was hooked after the first episode.”
“Army Wives” airs on Sundays on Lifetime. Ms. Wegmann’s debut episode airs May 29 at 9 p.m.
