In Just Add Magic, Wallace plays Grandma Quinn. Loosely based on Cindy Callaghan's book of the same name, the series follows Kelly (Olivia Sanabia, Extant), and her two best friends Darbie (Abby Donnelly, Suburgatory) and Hannah (Aubrey Miller, Austin & Ally), as they stumble upon a mysterious cookbook in Kelly's attic and discover the recipes in this book are far from ordinary, they're magical.
