Former WILL + Grace co-stars Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes are set to star in a spin-off of the hit comedy.
The pair will reprise their camp double-act in Karen + Jack, which is currently in development at network NBC.
According to sources, Hayes was keen on a spin-off soon after Will + Grace ended in 2006 - but was put off by the failure of Matt LeBlanc's Friends follow-on Joey.
Plans were then derailed when Mullally landed a talk show - but that flopped, throwing the pair back together again.
The insider tells the National Enquirer, "They feel there is still a lot of life left in their characters and a lot of comic possibilities."
If a pilot episode is successful, Karen + Jack could be on the air in the U.S. next autumn (09).
