Nicole Richie is preparing to launch an acting career as the star of a new TV sitcom.
The former Simple Life star is returning to the small screen for a half-hour show, which she pitched to bosses at U.S. network ABC.
The mum-of-two will produce the series, in which she'll star as a working woman juggling her family and love life, reports Daily Variety.
It's not the first time the 28 year old has tried her hand at acting - she's notched up guest appearances on TV hit Chuck, as well as 8 Simple Rules and American Dreams.
