Entertainment Weekly reports that Arrested Development's Portia de Rossi will be appearing in a three-episode arc on NBC's SEAN SAVES THE WORLD.

Read the original story here.

De Rossi will play Sean Hayes' high-powered ex-wife who comes back into his life unexpectedly. The episodes are set to air early in spring 2014.

De Rossi will next be seen on the big screen in Now Add Honey. She is well known for her portrayal of the vapid 'Lindsay Bluth Funke' on Netflix's Arrested Development and has also appeared in TV's Better Off Ted, Nip/Tuck, Ally McBeal, the un-aired Mockingbird Lane TV movie and more.

About SEAN SAVES THE WORLD: Sean (Sean Hayes, "Will & Grace") is a divorced dad who juggles a lot - his successful but demanding career, offbeat employees, pushy mom, Lorna (Linda Lavin, "Alice"), and weekends with his teenage daughter, Ellie (Samantha Isler). So when his 14-year-old bundle of joy moves in full time, it's a whole new world.

Never one to do anything halfway, Sean's intent on Being the best dad ever, so he loads up on parenting how-to books and plans Pinterest-worthy family dinners. But it seems his company's new owner (Thomas Lennon, "Reno 911!") has decided Sean and his team should work longer hours, putting a damper on his homemaking plans and throwing a kink in Sean's perfectly constructed work/life balance. Ellie, a normal girl who wants to hang with her friends and eat on the run, sees this development as a plus. She loves her dad, but he's clearly going overboard.

From keeping his boss happy, employees motivated and enduring his mother's tactless "advice" to raising a smart, grounded and healthy kid, it's going to be a growing experience, to say the least. But if anyone can handle it all, it's Sean.

Echo Kellum ("Ben and Kate") also stars.
