From HitFlix.com: SAN DIEGO - Anna Faris is getting dark...for her role in Chuck Lorre's new CBS sitcom?

While the "Dictator" actress was at Comic-Con to promote her upcoming animated sequel "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" - in which she returns to voice the role of weather intern Samantha Sparks - she was also more than happy to discuss her new fall TV series "Mom," in which she plays a single mother and recovering alcoholic who relocates to California's Napa Valley for a fresh start.

"It really touches on a lot of crazy issues," said Faris of the show. "My character...had her kids when she was a teenager, and has had some hardships in life. And so I loved that idea that it was really a character with so much depth and so interesting. And the script was hysterical and dark. I remember saying 'Chuck, I can't believe that they're gonna put this on the air.'"
