Teri Hatcher already has a new TV job following the end of Desperate Housewives.
The actress, who starred as Wisteria Lane's hapless Susan Mayer for eight years, will appear in four episodes of comedy drama Jane By Design.
Teri, 47, will play the lead character's estranged mum, and will also spend an episode in the director's chair.
The brunette – pictured with her Housewives co-star James Denton – is excited about taking the reins of the show, which also stars David Clayton Rogers and Andie MacDowell.
"So many of the crew and cast of Desperate Housewives have been encouraging me to do this for a long time, from Vanessa Williams, James Denton, to the talented camera crew department and producers," she said.
"Now that I have time, I'm excited to wholeheartedly conquer new ventures."
