The 47-year-old actress, who has just wrapped up the shooting of `Desperate Housewives`, will also get behind the camera to direct four episodes of the show, reported Contactmusic.
"I`m thrilled for the opportunity to direct. So many of the crew and cast of `Desperate Housewives` have been encouraging me to do this for a long time, from Vanessa Williams, James Denton, to the talented camera crew department and producers.
"Now that I have time, I`m excited to whole heartedly conquer new ventures. Jane By Design is charming, with very funny performances. I look forward to working with new and old friends over there and helping them tell stories both in front and behind the camera," Hatcher said.
