Pop superstar Katy Perry will guest star on Raising Hope on the Tuesday, March 6 episode of the Fox sitcom, the network announced via press release this week.
She'll play a prison attendant who claims to be a former friend of Sabrina's.
The episode will find Sabrina arrested after participating in an Occupy Natesville protest. She ends up in jail, and Perry's Rikki (below) plays a key role there:
How did this come about? Executive producer Greg Garcia said:
“Shannon Woodward (Sabrina) told me that her friend Katy was interested in doing an episode and I thought, ‘Why not? Let's do your friend Katy a favor,’”
“Then she came in and did a terrific job. She was hilarious."
"And now, people are telling me that Katy Perry is also a singer. I sincerely hope her appearance on RH helps her get her career off the ground. It's a tough business.”
Nicely played. We're just sad she doesn't have a blue 'fro.
