Debra Messing Lands Lead Role in NBC Comedy Pilot About Laid-Off CEO

Debra Messing Returns to NBC as a Struggling CEO

Debra Messing could be making a return to her comedy home of NBC this Fall. The former Will and Grace and The Starter Wife star has been cast in a new comedy pilot that's apparently been all the rage in Hollywood these past few days.

The show, which has no title yet, stars Messing as a laid-off CEO who finds she's unprepared to be a full-time wife and mother. The writers are a couple of familiar names in Messing's world: Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriot also wrote and executive produced The Starter Wife. The show reportedly "sparked a bidding war between NBC and ABC after interest from several networks."

It looks like shows about the current economy really are a hot ticket these days. I'm glad to see Messing land another lead, and I'm curious to hear more as this show takes shape. What about you?
