The Ellen Show creator Carol Leifer is returning to CBS with a new gay comedy, The Hollywood Reporter reported.

CBS has picked up Leifer's latest comedy inspired in part by her own real-life.

The tentatively titled You and Me and He centers on a woman who enters a lesbian relationship after divorcing her husband and soon discovers that she's pregnant with her ex-husband's baby.

Leifer and her partner, Lori Wolf, are busy raising 2-year-old Bruno Leifer-Wolf in California.

The 53-year-old comedienne was discovered by David Letterman in the 80s. Since then she has written for The Larry Sanders Show, Saturday Night Live and Seinfeld.

In her 2009 book When You Lie About Your Age, The Terrorists Win, Leifer discusses her coming out process.

The short-lived The Ellen Show starred openly lesbian Ellen DeGeneres and aired on CBS in 2001. DeGeneres went on to host her own daytime talk show, Ellen.

Leifer is also behind Mouthpiece, a Showtime comedy starring Marlee Matlin and actor-comedian Mario Cantone.
