Jessica Simpson to star in semi-autobiographical comedy
Los Angeles: Singer-actress Jessica Simpson, who is expecting her second child with fiancé Eric Johnson, is all set to star in an untitled comedy which is based on her life.
Simpson is reteaming with Fashion Star producer Electus and NBC for the comedy. Universal Television and Electus will produce the project, the Hollywood Reporter said.
Nick Bakay, whose credits include Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Zookeeper and `Til Death, will pen the script and executive produce alongside Electus` Ben Silverman and Simpson`s father-manager, Joe Simpson. Electus` Jimmy Fox will co-exec produce.
"I am so excited to work with Ben and NBC again, this time on a scripted comedy. 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," said Simpson.
`The Dukes of Hazzard` star has done well in the reality TV segment with her marriage to former husband Nick Lachey being part of `MTV`s Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica`. She is currently a mentor on `Fashion Star`.
