Anne Heche Gets Back into TV on 'Save Me'


Bentley, Rick, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)

Anne Heche is a firm believer in second chances. That's why she connects so well with the role she's playing in the new NBC series "Save Me."

The 43-year-old Ohio native talks in very positive terms, saying she shares the same determination to make people happy that Beth gets after the TV character's close encounter of the terminal kind. …
