Superman's girlfriend Teri Hatcher is back in a new TV series after taking seven years out to raise her daughter.

The former LOIS AND CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN star will join ex-Melrose Place actress MARCIA CROSS and KNOTS LANDING's Nicollette Sheridan in new comedy Desperate Housewives.

The comedy will have a dark edge because the episodes will be narrated by a housewife, who commits suicide and comes back from the dead to look in on her friends and neighbours.

Hatcher admits she's delighted to be back in the limelight because, after seven years off, "I couldn't get an audition to save my life."

She'll play a divorced, single mother in the series, which will also feature Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria.

Hatcher adds, "I think if I wasn't in it, it would be a show that I would want to watch with my girlfriends, because it just feels like it's an entertaining version of our life."
