Ripa, Consuelos to Soap Up CW

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos will once again pair up for television.

The husband and wife acting couple will develop a comedy for the CW network that will riff off their real-life experiences in the world of soap operas.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the couple has received a script commitment for the comedy, which is as yet untitled

The couple met while working on ABC's "All My Children," on which Ripa played Hayley Vaughn Santos from 1990-2002, and Consuelos portrayed Mateo Santos Sr. (1995-2002). Consuelos also had a recurring role on his wife's comedy "Hope & Faith," and they both co-starred in "1-800-Missing."

Ripa and Consuelos, both 36, married in 1996 and have three children: Michael, 9; Lola, 5; and Joaquin, 3.

The CW already has another sitcom based on a real-life acting couple. "All of Us" was co-created and executive produced by Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith about their life. It's now part of the CW's comedy lineup, which moves to Mondays, starting Oct. 9.
