New mom Christina Applegate is getting herself back to work on the small screen as NBC picked up her new series Up All Night.
The series co-stars two other funny parents, Will Arnett, who has boys Archie and Abel with his wife Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph, who’s expecting baby #3.
“It’s basically who we are anyway,” says Christina, who stars as a PR exec married to her stay-at-home-dad hubby, played by Will. “[It’s about] being a parent and [balancing] work, and, all of us. It’s kind of us.”
Applegate welcomed her baby daughter, Sadie Grace, earlier this year and tell Access Hollywood that it’s time for her to get back to work.
“I don’t think I was ready at the time, but I will be ready,” she says, adding of motherhood, “It’s excellent… Amazing. We don’t have anybody with helping, which we will soon.”
