8:30pm – Tuesday, September 25 on FOUR

Guest stars Jane Kaczmarek and Peter Gallagher are making Christmas a little less festive as Whitney’s parents in this week’s unmissable Whitney, screening on Tuesday, September 25 th at 8:30pm on FOUR. Titled “Christmas Is Cummings”, this week’s holiday-themed episode sees television veterans Peter Gallagher (The O.C.) and Jane Kaczmarek (Malcolm in the Middle) making a special guest appearance as Whitney’s parents.

“I play Whitney’s father, Vince,” explains Gallagher. “In Whitney’s world view, all of the difficulties she has with men and with life in general stem from her terrible father – who I don’t think is as terrible as she remembers, but certainly not reliable, a bit of a con man, sort of a day late and a dollar short kind of guy, always with an angle. And it was an enormous amount of fun.”

“We have quite an antagonistic relationship,” adds Kaczmarek. “Whitney blames both of her parents for a lot of her colourful ways, let’s say. And as Candy, her mother, I have quite a bit of hostility towards [Vince].”

“Whitney is determined to keep her parents apart, because she doesn’t want to have a destroyed Christmas the way she had growing up when her parents were together, and mayhem ensues.” Make sure not to miss this when Whitney continues on Tuesday, September 25 th at 8:30pm on FOUR.
