"MADE IN JERSEY" - JANET MONTGOMERY
BEVERLY HILLS (AP) -- She may be British, but Janet Montgomery can relate to the Jersey girl she plays in "Made in Jersey." Her character is an attorney, but her family is working class, so she's comfortable with both white collar and blue collar people. Montgomery says she has six brothers and sisters and a father who works in the post office, so she, too, lives in two worlds. She says she's comfortable hanging in her old neighborhood or in Los Angeles, where she lives now. Made in Jersey premieres Friday on CBS.
