Ricki Lake Gets A Sitcom

American talk show queen RICKI LAKE's professional life is going from strength-to-strength - she's landed her first sitcom.

The bubbly brunette, who made her name in the JOHN WATERS film HAIRSPRAY, will end her eponymous hit show in January (04) and will move straight on to the as-yet-untitled comedy series. No details of the new project's casting or plot plans have yet been revealed.

Lake, 33, split from her husband of nine years, political illustrator ROB SUSSMAN in August (03).
