LOS ANGELES, Nov 11, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Former "Everybody Loves Raymond" star Patricia Heaton says she is looking for a new television show in which to act.
"I have a development deal with ABC," Heaton told United Press International in a recent phone interview. "So, I've been working on putting something together. I don't know yet (if it will be another family sit-com.) I'm not really sure what it's going to be. It's in the very primitive stages."
Heaton said producing and starring in the new TNT movie, "The Engagement Ring," a love story set in California wine country, showed her how cushy sit-com work is by comparison.
"I'm used to the sit-com. Four cameras, a four-day-a-week schedule from 10 to 4. So, to shoot a minimum of 12 hours a day was like a shock to my system and it made me appreciate how hard film actors work and it made me appreciate my own schedule on a sit-com, which I'm going to hurry back to as soon as I can find another one because this one was too much like work," she said.
