Katherine will play Bridget, who is described as a mom who tries her best to be a laid-back, progressive parent like her therapist husband.

AceShowbiz - Katherine Heigl has gotten herself a new TV gig. The "Suits" actress has been tapped to star on new CBS comedy pilot titled "Our House".

The planned series follows a devoted mom named Bridget (Katherine) and dad, who are committed to raising their children with the love and support the mom never got as a kid. However, the couple discovers that it will be difficult to do as her insane parents and siblings come back in the picture.

Bridget is described as someone who tries her best to be a laid-back, progressive parent like her therapist husband, Shawn (played by "Timeless" actor Malcolm Barrett). But she often finds herself reverting to the old school style of her parents.

Now that she's moved back into her childhood home, surrounded by her parents and crazy siblings, finding a balance between these wildly different parenting styles is going to be more difficult than she imagined.

In addition to starring, Katherine will executive produce the multi-cam series alongside Brendan O'Brien, who will also write the pilot. Joining them as executive producers are Nick Stoller and Conor Welch with Sony Pictures Television producing in association with CBS Television Studios. James Burrows has been attached to direct.

Should the project land on CBS' fall schedule, it will mark Katherine's first foray into broadcast comedy. Her credits include "Doubt", "State of Affairs" and "Grey's Anatomy". The 40-year-old also played the original Isabel Evans on the 1999 version of "Roswell". As for feature films, she starred in several flicks including "Knocked Up", "27 Dresses and "The Ugly Truth".

Katherine previously talked about her fierce character on "Suits". "Samantha is really fierce," Heigl told Entertainment Tonight back in June, 2018. "I keep hashtagging her #girlwithgumption 'cause she is. She just doesn't take any s**t and she is not intimidated or afraid of any of these guys, and she has this attitude of 'Well, if this doesn't work, something else will. I always come up with something that will work.' She doesn't let anything [get to] her and she's a little crafty. She's a little underhanded."
