They never can quite get together on screen, can they?

Real life couple and hilarious TV exes, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally have together signed on to play parents of two best friends in an upcoming comedy. Titled "Gay Dude," Variety relays that it's about two best friends, played by Nicholas Braun and Hunter Cope, who vow to get laid before their senior prom -- shades of "American Pie" -- before one of the kids comes out as gay to the other.

Offerman will play supportive father to the gay friend, while Mullally will be mother to the other friend. The pair are, of course, the hilariously combustible divorcees Ron Swanson and Tammy (two), who manipulate each other into sex and political favors. This season will see the addition of Swanson's first ex wife named Tammy, to be played by Patricia Clarkson, who terrifies Mullally's Tammy character.
