The View co-host Sherri Shepherd is leaning on her own life for a new comedy series being developed for Lifetime.

The show, to star Shepherd, centers around a wife who accepts her spouse’s wandering ways – and lets his mistress and illegitimate child move into her household, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Besides The View, Shepherd, 41, also appeared as brother Robert’s police-force partner on CBS’s Everybody Loves Raymond and, more recently, has had recurring roles on NBC’s 30 Rock and ABC’s Less Than Perfect.
