As well as her work in front of the camera, McCarthy is also expanding her portfolio as a producer by developing a family comedy for Fox alongside her husband Ben Falcone.

The half-hour long show will follow an unconventional family unit that is formed when a successful, driven man finds himself back in his estranged sister's life in a big way. As if resuming contact isn't stressful enough, he also ends up living under one roof with his sibling and her two children. Awkward!

Clothing Range

Before she pursued an acting career, McCarthy studied textiles at Southern Illinois University and wanted to become a fashion designer, so it's only natural that the star has developed her own clothing range.

In a response to the lack of fresh. stylish clothes for plus-sized women, McCarthy whipped up her clothing line, Seven7, and it has since won an plethora of positive reviews from larger ladies.

Look forward to new ranges in the future as Melissa's sideline continues to go from strength to strength!
