Fashion mogul and former Pop Star and reality show darling, Jessica Simpson will be making her return to acting. The future mommy of two pitched a comedy to NBC about her crazy life and the network has just picked up the pilot episode!
According to Deadline:
NBC has ordered a comedy pilot presentation starring Jessica Simpson. The single-camera project, inspired by Simpson’s life, is based on a pitch developed by Robin and Nick Bakay, with Nick Bakay (Two And A Half Men) writing the pilot script.
“I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life — so between the real-life elements and a great team of writers, I think we’ll have people laughing!,” Simpson said.
Simpson and NBC are also collaborating on the reality series Fashion Star, which is heading into its second season. The half-hour is executive produced by Simpson, Nick Bakay, Ben Silverman and Jessica’s father/manager Joe Simpson.
“Jessica Simpson is truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops,” said Silverman. “From running a fashion empire to wrangling her public image as a new mom, we see Jessica’s character approach a variety of ‘everyday’ circumstances that will get audiences laughing out loud.”
Love Jessica! Will you be watching?
