Having also starred as Lois in the ABC series “Lois and Clark,” Hatcher often finds herself a role model to young women in journalism and carries a Superman fan base that is nothing short of global. Most recently, Hatcher starred in Hallmark’s “A Kiss Before Christmas,” where she re-united with her “Desperate Housewives” co-star James Denton. She also appeared in Showtime’s 2021 comedy special, “Even More Funny Women of a Certain Age,” which marked her stand-up comedy debut. Hatcher played the villainous Rhea in CW’s “Supergirl.” Hatcher’s career on the small screen spans some of the most iconic shows in television history, including “Seinfeld,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Frasier,” “MacGyver,” “Two and a Half Men” and “Smallville.” Her comedic expertise was noted when she hosted “Saturday Night Live” in 1995, landing at least two of her sketches in the “Best of SNL” highlights series.

Hatcher’s first feature film role in Christopher Guest’s “The Big Picture” remains one of her career highlights, along with movie roles in “Soapdish,” “Spy Kids,” “Tomorrow Never Dies” and voicing all three mothers in Henry Selick’s Oscar-nominated animated film, “Coraline,” as well as voicing the character of Dottie in Disney’s “Planes” franchise.

In 2006, Hatcher wrote her first book, a funny and inspiring look at a woman finding balance between family, career and self, entitled Burnt Toast and Other Philosophies of Life. The book showcased Hatcher’s ability to connect with and know her audience, Leslie Bennetts of Vanity Fair said “Reading [Hatcher’s] book is like gabbing with a funny, appealing girlfriend who is completely aware of her own neuroses.” It remained on the New York Times Bestseller list for four weeks.

In “Don’t Eat ‘It’ Out of a Box,” she gives tutorials on alternatives to boxed meals and snacks. Her easy-to-follow tutorials are as funny as they are informative and educational.

Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
