Deadline confirmed the 40-year-old actress will join "Timeless" alum Malcolm Barrett in the family comedy "Our House."

"Our House" centers on Bridget (Heigl) and Shawn (Barrett), a couple committed to raising their children with the love and support Bridget didn't receive as a kid.

The pair face difficulties after Bridget's parents and siblings come back into the picture.

The pilot is written by Brendan O'Brien and directed by James Burrows. Heigl will executive produce with O'Brien, Nick Stoller and Conor Welch.

Heigl also stars as Samantha Wheeler in the USA Network series "Suits." The Hollywood Reporter said "Our House's" filming dates don't overlap with "Suits'" production schedule.

Heigl previously starred in the CBS series "Doubt" and as Izzie Stevens in the ABC medical drama "Grey's Anatomy."

Barrett portrayed Rufus Carlin on "Timeless" and now stars in the AMC series "Preacher."
