Cloris Leachman and Florence Henderson Have a Tense Meal in ‘The Eleventh’ (VIDEO)
Let’s face facts: family can either be a barrel of laughs or a complete drag. In the case of Margaret (Cloris Leachman), breaking bread with her younger sister Regina (Florence Henderson) is the latter, considering Regina has just sold her house from under her.
The two TV legends are part of a new series, The Eleventh, on Hallmark’s streaming channel Feeln. Its five-episode first season involves Margaret facing and revealing hard truths about her recently-deceased daughter when her estranged granddaughter Janine (Ren Harris) comes back into her life. In addition to Leachman and Henderson, the cast includes Ed Asner (he’s in the clip as the owner of the restaurant, where Margaret is a regular) and two actors that ’80s kids would recognize: Christopher Atkins, who plays Janine’s dad Neil, and Tracy Nelson, who plays Cynthia, Neil’s neighbor and love interest.
