The potential show would star Garcia as a woman who moves in with her husband's family, Deadline reports.
The project, which was picked up by ABC after a bidding war involving NBC and CBS, is being written by Shana Goldberg-Meehan.
Goldberg-Meehan and Garcia previously collaborated on the ABC comedy Better With You, which was cancelled in May after one season.
Goldberg-Meehan has also worked on Friends, while Garcia has starred in shows such as Privileged, Gossip Girl and Reba.
Better WIth You's executive producers John Hoberg and Kat Likkel are also thought to be working on a new comedy project, an adaptation of Stephanie Dolgoff's memoir My Formerly Hot Life.
