Los Angeles: Katherine Heigl might be coming back to the small screen -- as a producer.

The CW has placed a script order for a possible drama to be executive-produced by the former ‘Grey`s Anatomy’ star and her mother Nancy via their Abishag production company.

The series, currently titled ‘Trending,’ is based on the 2006 Cynthia Langston novel ‘Bicoastal Babe,’ about a young woman who lands at a job at an advertising agency spotting trends, despite her ineptitude at doing so.

On top of her career difficulties, she also must contend with a messy romantic life.

Gren Wells, who penned the Kate Hudson/Gael Garcia Bernal rom-com ‘A Little Bit of Heaven,’ will write as well as executive-produce.

As previously reported, Heigl is also developing an adaptation of Ann Hood`s 2007 novel ‘The Knitting Circle,’ in which she`ll also star, for HBO.

News of ‘Trending’ being purchased by the CW was first reported by Deadline.
