Christina Applegate Lifetime Dramedy

Christina Applegate Family Dramedy in Development at Lifetime

Christina Applegate‘s small-screen career is about to take a serious turn.

The actress — best known for her comedic work on shows like Married… With Children (1987–1997), Jesse (1998–2000) and Samantha Who? (2007–2009) — has been tapped to star in a new dramedy for Lifetime, our sister site Deadline reports.

Your Time Is Up, written by Kathleen Robertson (Murder in the First) and produced by Gil Netter (Life of Pi), finds Applegate playing a put-upon psychologist struggling to reclaim her life after tragedy strikes her family. Per the report, her “unconventional upbringing” inspires a “unique approach” to helping her patients.
