Some of Jessica Simpson’s music may be laughable but is her life really all that funny?
The NBC network certainly thinks so given they are basing a semi-autobiographical sitcom around the singer and Fashion Star judge.
The network has begun developing the yet-to-be-named sitcom with Robin and Nick Bakay, the comedy geniuses behind Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Hmmm…
“We are thrilled to team up with the multi-talented Jessica Simpson to bring this new sitcom to life on NBC as she is truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops,” series producer Electus chairman Ben Silverman says. “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.”
Simpson herself said: “I am so excited to work with Ben and NBC again, this time on a scripted comedy. 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!”
