The former Mom star is reteaming with the show's co-executive producer Susan McMartin for the multicamera comedy that is in development. "The Porch, based on an idea by Pressly, was written by McMartin from a story by her and Pressly," according to Deadline. "It centers on recently divorced LJ (Pressly), who returns home to the small North Carolina island she couldn’t wait to leave to bury a mom she couldn’t stand. She finds herself staying far longer than she ever imagined, reconnecting with the 'porch' folks she never felt a part of and falling in love for the first time with the train wreck of a mother who is no longer alive."
