Jessica Simpson - Jessica Simpson To Star In U.s. Sitcom About Her Life

Pop star Jessica Simpson is set to star in a new U.S. sitcom based on her life.

The singer welcomed her first child, Maxwell, with fiance Eric Johnson last May (12), and she recently announced she was pregnant again - but that isn't keeping Simpson from slowing down.

The busy mum is teaming up with the executives behind her American reality series Fashion Star, on which she serves as a mentor, for a semi-autobiographical scripted comedy.

Tv boss Ben Silverman tells TvGuide.com, "Having gotten the opportunity to work with Jessica on Fashion Star and see how funny she is firsthand, it seemed natural for her to end up in a situational comedy. She has gone through her own life journey, now becoming a mother. Her unique yet totally accessible approach to family is something I think America will love and laugh at."

Her father and manager, Joe Simpson, will co-produce the project with Silverman.

And Simpson, who made her acting debut in 2005's The Dukes of Hazzard, is excited about the venture: "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!"
