Natasha Leggero is going back to the future.

The co-creator and star of Comedy Central's Another Period is set to guest-star on Showtime's Andrew Dice Clay comedy, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Dice tells the semi-autobiographical stories of the stand-up comedian. The scripted comedy follows the polarizing talent as he attempts to resurrect his career in Las Vegas while supporting his family, as well as his girlfriend, his ex-fiance, his ex-wife and his mother-in-law.

Leggero will play Carmen, Dice's girlfriend.

From Fox 21 Television Studios, the half-hour, single-camera comedy is created and written by Scot Armstrong (Old School). He will exec produce with Sean Furst, Bryan Furst, Richard Shepard (GirlsBruce Rubenstein and Clay. The project earned a straight-to-series order in March.

Production on the six-episode first season begins later this year for a 2016 debut.

Leggero's other credits include Modern Family, Neighbors and frequent appearances on Chelsea Lately. She is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment and Schreck Rose.
