Jessica Simpson - Is This A Good Idea? Jessica Simpson To Star In Autobiographical NBC Comedy

Jessica Simpson has signed on to star in a new NBC comedy series, loosely based on her own life as a celebrity who must balance life as a mother and a public figure. On Tuesday (January 15, 2013), producer Ben Silverman confirmed to Reuters that a pilot episode is set to go into development.

The show will be Simpson's first step back into acting for over five years, though she has nothing on her showreel to suggest she could front her own comedy show. The former teen pop star is perhaps best known for her MTV reality Newlyweds, which detailed the trials and tribulations of her marriage to Nick Lachey, though she followed it up with the poorly received The Dukes of Hazzard in 2005 and Employee of the Month in 2006. Silverman - the creator of The Biggest Loser - said, "The show is inspired by her life as she's going through a new phase in her life becoming a mom. It's a combination of 'I Love Lucy' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm." We really wish he hadn't mentioned Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Simpson doesn't have great form when it comes to pilots - in 2004, she taped an episode of a new show about a pop star who becomes an anchor, though ABC rejected it. The singer - who gave birth to her first child in May 2012 and is pregnant with her second - will also serve as an executive producer on the new show.
