Debra Messing is back to work! Her last show, The Starter Wife, didn’t stick around too long, but all is well as she’s heading back to NBC as the star of a brand new comedy. And if there’s one thing Messing does right, it’s humor.
The new untitled NBC pilot, stars Debra as a CEO who gets laid off and prepares to be a stay-at-home mom while her husband goes to work. Sounds like the situation a lot of Americans are finding themselves in lately!
The show was written by Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon, whom Messing worked with on The Starter Wife. And though that show only lasted two seasons, it won 10 Emmy nominations.
NBC and ABC have actually been a bidding war to see who gets the show, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, the favor is in NBC’s court. At the peacock network, the show is getting a script commitment plus an episodic guarantee for Messing.
Debra is a force t be reckoned with when it comes to comedy, and she’s just a fun person to watch. Ever since her days on Will & Grace, we’ve loved her!
