Are you ready to see new mommy Christina back on network TV?

Motherhood won’t keep Christina Applegate off camera. It has been confirmed by Access Hollywood that the actress is set to appear in the new comedy series Up All Night, which co-stars new dad Will Arnett and mom-to-be Maya Rudolph! It’s a celebrity parent comedy masterpiece! 

“I don’t think I was ready at the time, but I will be ready,” Christina, 39, explains, referring to finally being ready to get back on a consistent film schedule after welcoming daughter Sadie in February.

Christina will play the role of Reagan, a public relations executive married to Chris, a stay at home husband, played by Will Arnett. Maya Rudolph of Saturday Night Live will play Ava, Reagan’s boss.

“Everybody has different reasons for being up all night,” former Arrested Development Will stated. Coincidentally, all three stars are new parents or expecting. Rudolph is pregnant with her third child and Arnett just welcomed his second son, Abel James, 9 months.

“It’s excellent… Amazing,” Christina raved about parenting. “We don’t have anybody with helping, which we will soon.”

This is Christina’s first network comedy gig since Samantha Who, which was cancelled in 2009. Up All Night will air on NBC during the 2011-2012 season.
