How do you get comedy legend Carol Burnett to sign on to your TV show when her character spends multiple episodes in a coma?

In the new Apple TV+ series “Palm Royale,” Kristen Wiig plays a woman desperate to be a member of an exclusive club. She co-stars with an impressive cast that includes Carol Burnett, Laura Dern, Ricky Martin and Allison Janney.

“I went back to the writers room. I said, ‘We now have Carol Burnett playing this role. We need to make sure it is worthy of Carol Burnett.’” They added more scenes for her character — with dialogue.“I did fall asleep, so it was perfect, although I’d been up since 5 a.m. to get ready to come there and then go back to bed,’' Burnett said.

Maxine’s “in” to both Palm Royale and its members is Burnett’s character, Norma D’ellacourt, who she is related to by marriage. With Norma in a coma, Maxine believes her husband will inherit her fortune. Janney plays a socialite who is a lady-in-waiting for Burnett’s throne. Janney, an Oscar winner, says working with Burnett legitimized her career to her father.

Because Dern has been fortunate enough to have some exciting roles in her own career, she wants others to have that opportunity.
