It’s been three years since Debra Messing and her Will & Grace co-stars said goodbye to TV audiences after eight seasons on NBC. And now OK! has confirmed reports that the Emmy-winning actress is set to return to the network with a brand-new comedy series.

The 40-year-old beauty has just inked a deal to develop a script for a new sitcom that will be filmed in and around Manhattan. In a straight-from-the-headlines story, Debra will star as a former CEO forced into being a stay-at-home mom by the faltering economy.

And one source close to the show tells OK! you can definitely expect to see her old Will & Grace co-stars popping up on occasional guest spots!

Since the end of Will & Grace, Debra has been keeping busy with two seasons of the USA Network hit The Starter Wife, for which she received an Emmy nomination.
