Be still our Ripa-loving hearts. The daytime host is making another play for scripted success -- and this time, the project will focus on her husband.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are developing a sitcom with ABC, tentatively titled "Port Love." Deadline reports the couple, who are co-executive-producers, have been given the go ahead to co-write the story. And should the series get picked up, Consuelos will star, with Ripa in a recurring role.

"Port Love" reportedly focuses on the cast and crew of a formerly popular network series whose backstage drama eclipses the show they're working on.

This won't be the first time the couple have appeared on screen together. They met working on "All My Children," and Consuelos frequently guested on his wife's three-season run of "Hope & Faith."

We have hope and faith that this show won't be as awful as that.
