The actress - who shot to fame in Disney's tween show 'Lizzie Maguire' - has taken some time out of her career recently to focus on her marriage to MIKE COMRIE and their five-month-old son Luca but is thrilled to have signed a development deal with 20th Century Fox which will see her make her small screen return.

Hilary tweeted: ''Ok it's official! Very excited about my development deal with 20th century fox!! t.v. here I come! :) (sic)''
