According to Deadline, NBC has closed deals for a new comedy starring Sean Hayes—bringing "Jack" to NBC full-time once again (or a reasonable fascimile). The show, which Hayes is also producing, centers around him "figuring out how to parent his 14-year-old daughter, who just moved in, while navigating a temperamental new boss at work." The main plot follows last year's project focused on gay dads raising a 12-year-old, which was nipped before shooting a pilot. No word, however, on whether Hayes will play gay or straight. 

Next year, Hayes will also be runtied with his fellow Will & Grace co-star Debra Messing in his role in the upcoming second season of NBC’s Smash. Most recently, Hayes has had a couple of guest roles on NBC's Up All Night, which stars Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, and Maya Rudolph as the diva-ish Ava. Rudolph and Hayes have been hilarious together, in the recent 'Thanksgiving' episode the two channel in the Jack and Karen relationship a bit. Here's hoping we see more of the two together, or maybe, Megan Mullally will have a guest role on Hayes' new show!
