East Tennessee Megan Fox has a lot to be thankful for: She's co-starring with her husband on an episode of his new sitcom.

Hey, ingrate. Yeah. I'm talking to you, stuffing your face with that turkey. Be thankful for East Tennessee celebrity news coming your way today.

Thankfully Foxy.

East Tennessee native Megan Fox is going back to her television roots.

The former co-star on ABC's "Hope & Faith" sitcom, in which she played Kelly Ripa's niece, shot a cameo on "The Wedding Band," a new series on TBS. "Band" airs on Saturday nights on the cable channel.

"Band" is about friends who play in a group paid to play weddings. Brian Austin Green, who is Fox's real-life husband and the father of her baby, co-stars in the series.

According to one source, Fox will pop up in a Comic-Con themed episode in which she flirts with one of the band's members (played by Green).

Fox was born in Oak Ridge and lived in Roane and Anderson counties as a young girl. Once her parents divorced, she moved with her mother to Florida. Fox's father still lives in the Knoxville area.

If you're still stumped over who Fox is, you should crawl out from under that rock and watch one of the "Transformers" movies (well, watch one of the first two, at least. She wasn't in the most recent one, which came out in 2011).

Thankfully scared

Cable channel FX has seen its future — and it includes a new season of its hit "American Horror Story," created by former Knoxville resident Ryan Murphy.

FX has picked up 13 more episodes of the so-called "miniseries," and it will start up in the fall of 2013.

Production of the untitled "Horror" will begin next summer.

Murphy's other series include "Glee" and "The New Normal."
