The half-hour comedy would be a new spin on the family comedy, following Gellar as a wife and mother, and the mischief she and her husband get into when their kids aren't around.

How I Met Your Mother's David Hemingson and Love and Other Drugs' Margaret Riley will serve as executive producers of the untitled project, which will be shopped to networks in the next few weeks.
