Emmy Contenders: Wendi McLendon-Covey live Wednesday at 11 a.m. PST

Wendi McLendon-Covey talks about playing a 1980s sitcom mom in a live chat Wednesday at 11a.m. PST

As Beverly Goldberg on ABC’s family time warp “The Goldbergs,” Wendi McLendon-Covey has brought the laughs (and painstakingly colorful gym outfits) to her character’s overbearing parenting ways.

The actress plays the matriarch on the “80s-something”-set comedy that is currently in its second season. And she’ll be stopping by the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday at 11 a.m. PST to discuss playing a sitcom mom based on a real person in the period comedy. 

The Wednesday laffer is part of an ABC family comedy block, sandwiched between veterans “The Middle” and the networks’ comedy golden child “Modern Family.”

McLendon-Covey, for her part,  is no stranger to the laughs — having appeared on “Reno 911” and in the big-screen hit “Bridesmaids.” And, pulling double duty on ABC, she also hosts the improv comedy show “Repeat After Me.”
