Connie Britton of hit ABC series "Nashville" has been added to the sprawling cast of Shawn Levy's "This Is Where I Leave You," a dark family comedy starring Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Jason Bateman, Timothy Olyphant ("Justified"), Corey Stoll ("House of Cards"), Ben Schwartz ("Parks and Recreation") and Adam Driver ("Girls"). Britton will play a therapist and the much older girlfriend of Driver's troubled character.

Driver, along with Fey, Bateman and Stoll, play the children of Fonda's character, a recent widow. Kathryn Hahn ("Step Brothers"), Rose Byrne ("Bridesmaids") and Abigail Spencer ("Oz the Great and Powerful") have been cast as various love interests to the brothers.

Jonathan Tropper has adapted his own 2009 novel of the same name, centering on four warring siblings who reunite following the death of their father. 

Director Levy, who helmed the "Night at the Museum" films as well as "Real Steel" and Fey-starrer "Date Night," is producing along with Paula Weinstein.

The Warner Bros. film is set to begin shooting in May.
