Daytime talk show host Kelly Ripa is heading back to primetime TV – and she's bringing hubby Mark Consuelos with her. The two are producing, writing and starring in a new comedy for ABC, reports Deadline.com.
The couple's project, "Port Love," is set at a once-popular network series where the cast and crew have more drama in their real lives than the show they work on. Ripa, 40, will continue to do her "Live! With Regis and Kelly" duties while making recurring appearances on "Port Love," and Consuelos, 39,will be a full-time cast member.
This isn't the first time the parents of three have shared screen time. Besides co-starring together (and falling in love) on the ABC soap "All My Children," Consuelos has appeared on Ripa's previous ABC sitcom "Hope & Faith," and filled in for Regis Philbin on her morning chat show.
