Jessica Simpson to star in comedy based on own life

Melbourne, Jan. 16 (ANI): Jessica Simpson has signed up to star in a scripted comedy that is based on her life.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 32-year-old singer is partnering with America’s NBC network for the untitled series.

Her father and manager, Joe, will executive produce alongside Electus’ Ben Silverman, News.com.au reported.

Silverman confirmed the project on Tuesday, comparing the NFL player Eric Johnson’s fiance to comedic legend Lucille Ball.

The series will mark the mother-of-one’s second attempt at scripted comedy following a 2004 venture with ABC that was never aired.

The blonde beauty said that she is looking forward to working with Silverman and NBC once again, and using her day-to-day life as comedic inspiration. (ANI)
