It’s been a while since we’ve seen Kyla Pratt as a regular in a TV series. Remember her days on One on One, and when she voiced Penny Proud on The Proud Family? Recently it was announced that the 32-year-old would be returning to our television screens in the upcoming Fox comedy pilot Patty’s Auto.
The show was “inspired by Patrice Banks’ Girls Auto Clinic, a Pennsylvania-based auto repair shop with all female mechanics. It revolves around Patty and the eclectic women who work for her,” according to Variety. So you can only imagine, a lot of personalities, opinions, and possibly some drama might arise because you never know what to expect with a group of ladies.
The real garage is “for women, by women,” and allows customers to embrace their inner feminity by being able to get their nails done while waiting for their cars to be fixed. Talk about full service! Listen to Banks tell the story of how the body shop came to be:
The actress joins cast members Carra Patterson, Joanna P. Adler, Sarah Levy, and Paola Lázaro. The former “Hotel For Dogs” star is set to portray the character of Tiny, the owner’s younger half-sister, who wears her heart on her sleeve. The program will stay true to the nail station inside the shop, where viewers will get to see Pratt’s acting chops at its finest, as her on-screen persona will be doing the majority of the beautification.
In the past year, the mother of two has made an appearance on an episode of Rel, as well as starred in the indie film “Back to the Goode Life,” and the TV movie “The Christmas Pact.”
You probably grew up watching the Los Angeles native in the Dr. Doolittle franchise, “Fat Albert,” and Barney’s Great Adventure in her adolescent stage of life. And, in recent years, she’s starred in Let’s Stay Together on BET and Recovery Road on Freeform.
