Actress Jennifer Esposito is working on a reality Tv show about living with the debilitating effects of autoimmune disorder celiac disease.

The former Blue Bloods star was diagnosed with the illness in 2009 and later alleged it was behind Tv network bosses' decision to cut her out of the police drama last year (12) after she asked them to scale back her shooting schedule.

Now she is eyeing a return to the small screen with a fly-on-the-wall show centred around sufferers of celiac disease.

The Latina beauty tells the New York Daily News, "I deal with all the wonderful stuff that comes along with dealing with an autoimmune disease, and it's hard. I wanted to expose (the effects of the disease)."

The show is scheduled for broadcast on the E! network, according to the publication.
