NBC burned off its episodes of the Anne Heche comedy series "Save Me" over the last month, but though it was never given much of a chance, it's ending its run with an eye-catching guest appearance. The ubiquitous Betty White will be appearing as God. The series, which cast Heche as a woman who forms a direct line of communication with God after nearly choking to death on a sandwich, will be ending June 13 with an episode titled "Holier Than Thou," and in it, Heche's character will come face to face with the deity she's been talking to all this time.

If there were an Emmy for Most Disturbingly Apt Title of Series, NBC's new comedy "Save Me" would win hands down. It just works on so many levels. "Save me" is certainly the phrase that surges to a critic's mind moments into the ludicrous machinations of the pilot. It is easily imagined in thought-bubble form above the head of the show's star, Ann Heche. FOR THE RECORD: "Save Me": A review of the NBC comedy "Save Me" in the May 23 Calendar section misspelled star Anne Heche's first name as Ann. - More important, it is becoming the network's not so subconscious mantra.

In the HBO series "Hung," now in its second season, Anne Heche plays Jessica, the dotty ex-wife of Ray, a football coach ( Thomas Jane) who turns to prostitution so he can afford to rebuild his home after a fire. For Heche, 41, the role caps a career comeback a decade after her much-publicized breakdown and breakup with Ellen DeGeneres. She shares her new life with James Tupper, her former "Men in Trees" co-star, and sons Homer, 8, and Atlas, about a year and a half, in a Mediterranean-style home in Hollywood.

The TV show "Men in Trees" had a brief but memorable run on ABC in 2006-08, and it led to some good things in star James Tupper's life. First, there's his relationship with "Trees" costar Anne Heche, with whom he shares a home in Venice with kids Homer, 7, and Atlas, 7 months. The show also led to his new series on NBC, the medical drama "Mercy" (Wednesdays at 8 p.m.). Check out what the "Trees" alums do with a weekend off, and they don't even have to leave the neighborhood.

Her real speaking voice falls somewhere between the hard Midwestern of her Jessica on HBO's "Hung" and the cool sophisticate, Samantha, she plays in the new film "Spread." Which only makes sense; Anne Heche is from Ohio but has navigated the palms of Hollywood for more than 20 years now since playing good and evil twins on "Another World." Now, at 40, her two current roles are akin to playing two sides of the same woman again. "I thought it was an incredibly sexual role and a challenge to be an 'older woman' in the film," she says of acting opposite Ashton Kutcher in "Spread."

The diminutive Anne Heche rules over the rainy Vancouver set of "Men in Trees" by the sheer speed of her movements, darting across the soundstage, chatting with the crew and drinking Red Bull, which she did not appear to need. And when she sat for an interview in her trailer, this declaration sounded like one word: "I had a dream, and my dream was to move after 'Grey's Anatomy.'
