The Desperate Housewives star explained that she is working on a project for cable network TNT.
Huffman told reporters at the Monte Carlo Television Festival: "Actually right now I'm developing some television shows.
"What I love about television shows is you get to stay home and work. That's better for me now with my children, and also I'm actually not a great traveller."
Huffman added: "I've got something with TNT with the Barnzs, who also produced and directed the film Phoebe In Wonderland I did.
"And then my husband [William H Macy] and I and... our production company, we're developing another television show."
Huffman recently signed a deal to star in at least one more season of Desperate Housewives.
