Sarah Michelle Gellar could soon be headed back to television.

The actress, whose CW vehicle Ringer was canceled at the end of last season, is eying a comedy in development at 20th Century Fox TV.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Gellar is circling the role of a wife in the sitcom about what parents do while they're kids aren't at home -- as first reported by TVLine.

Men at Work staff writer Shepard Boucher penned the spec script, and David Hemingson (Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23) and Margaret Riley (Love and Other Drugs) are attached as EPs.

Should the project go to pilot -- the studio will shop it to networks in the coming weeks -- it would be only her second attempt at the genre. Best known for playing lead in dramas Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Ringer, Gellar previously shot an ill-fated comedy pilot for HBO in 2009.

Gellar is repped by ICM.
