In a promo for Christina Applegate's new NBC series "Up All Night," the actress reveals her biggest bedroom fantasy.
"I'm alone in the bedroom, and you walk in," Applegate says seductively. "You tell me 'Don't speak,' that you'll take care of everything. So I lie down in the bed and you turn down the lights..."
Of course, Applegate's fantasy has a surprise ending (watch below). The comedy series marks the actress' return to television, two years after her old show "Samantha Who?" was canceled.
The pilot also stars "Arrested Development"'s Will Arnett as Applegate's husband and "Bridesmaids" actress Maya Rudolph as her boss and best friend.
In the new single-camera show, Applegate, 39, portrays an acerbic working mother, while Arnett plays her overwhelmed, but supportive stay-at-home husband.
The project was spearheaded by "Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels and writer Emily Spivey. Applegate is also one of the producers, her spokesperson had told OnTheRedCarpet.com.
In real life, Christina gave birth to her first daughter, Sadie, with musician Martyn LeNoble in January, Arnett and his wife, Amy Poehler welcomed their second child in August 2010, and Rudolph welcomed her third child in July.
Applegate has gained her own experience balancing parenthood and a career, which made the new mom miss her 7-month-old daughter Sadie while she is on-set.
"I spent the past six months 24/7 with my child, without a nanny. We just got a nanny for this show," Applegate told USA Today recently. "It's been us in our little bubble. It's hard to say goodbye to her in the morning. I think about her all day long. I miss her."
Applegate is known for playing the main character on "Samantha Who?," a comedy series that ran between 2007 and 2009, and for her role as ditzy Kelly Bundy on the sitcom "Married With Children," which starred "Modern Family" actor Ed O'Neill as her misanthropic father Al and "Sons of Anarchy" star Katey Sagal as her mother Peg.
Applegate has in recent years appeared in movies such as "Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore," "Going the Distance" and the 2011 comedy "Hall Pass."
Arnett has had a recurring role on the sitcom "30 Rock" for the past three years and played "George "Gob" Bluth II" on the cult comedy series "Arrested Development" between 2003 and 2006. He also starred on the short-lived show "Running Wilde" last year.
"Up All Night" will premiere on Wednesday, September 14 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Watch the new promo for the show below.
