Sarah Michelle Gellar is in talks for the role as a wife in a sitcom about what parents do when their children aren't at home, TVLine reported.
It would be Gellar's second attempt at comedy on television; she shot a comedy pilot for HBO in 2009 that wasn't picked up.
The Fox sitcom, a name for which was not reported, was written by "Men at Work" staff writer Shepard Boucher. David Hemingson and Margaret Riley are attached as executive producers.
Gellar's most recent television work was CW's "Ringer," which was canceled at the end of last season. She's best known for starring in the supernatural drama "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."
