She’s the mother to a nine-month-old daughter and she’s got another human baking in her womb, but that doesn’t mean pop star Jessica Simpson doesn’t have time for business. Indeed, it seems NBC has struck a deal with the former reality star to develop what’s being described as a Curb Your Enthusiasm-esque comedy series revolving around Simpson.
“The network has given the greenlight for producers to shoot a “presentation” — which means even though it’s not quite a pilot, there will be enough footage shot for NBC to consider ordering a show for next season,” reports TV Guide.
While she’s not exactly known as a television star, the 32-year-old has expanded beyond her pop tart ways in the past few years. She currently serves as a “mentor” on the competition series Fashion Star, which also airs on NBC. And how could we forget MTV’s funny-but-not-on-purpose reality show Newlyweds, on which she co-starred with ex-husband Nick Lachey?
