Sean Hayes has signed up to star in a new comedy project from NBC.

The Will & Grace actor will lead the cast in the currently untitled series, written by Better Off Ted creator Victor Fresco.

The series will follow Sean (Hayes), a man who has to work out how to look after his 14-year-old daughter who has just moved in with him, while also dealing with a tough new boss.

NBC's Bob Greenblatt previously revealed that Sean Hayes was a priority for the network.

"Sean is a friend, and I think it's time for him to star in a comedy again," Greenblatt said at last year's summer TCA.

Hayes was due to star in a new project about a gay couple raising a 12-year-old, but the series did not come to fruition.

The actor will star in a recurring role on NBC's Smash for its upcoming second season, reuniting with former Will & Grace co-star Debra Messing.
