What is Debra Messing doing now that Will & Grace is in reruns? Does she have plans to come back to TV?

—Adam Issacs, Centreville, Md.

Messing, who planned to take five years off after Will and Grace before considering another series, changed her mind. She’s back on television in the new USA network series Starter Wife. The project began as a 2007 miniseries—for which Messing, 40, was nominated for an Emmy—and returned for the fall with 10 episodes. “It feels amazing to be on a new show,” she says. Messing was recently on the big screen in The Women, co-starring with Meg Ryan and Annette Bening.
