Starring in USA Network's The Starter Wife won't be the only joint project for David Alan Basche and Alysia Reiner. The couple is also expecting their first child together this winter, their rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Reiner, who starred in 2007's miniseries The Starter Wife, will be reprising her role on the network series this fall. Basche, also a regular cast member on NBC's Lipstick Jungle, will be joining the cast opposite Debra Messing as her character's ex-husband, Kenny Kagan.
Basche and Reiner first met during a summer theater program in Vermont several years ago. "The script said fall in love," says Bashe. "You don't argue with Shakespeare!"
