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 (2009).
