Fashion Star producer Ben Silverman, who is helping with the pilot, said in a statement, "Jessica Simpson is truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops. From running a fashion empire to wrangling her public image as a new mom, we see Jessica’s character approach a variety of ‘everyday’ circumstances that will get audiences laughing out loud.”

Jess got her start on the hit reality series Newlyweds, and after dabbling in film (remember her bod in The Dukes Of Hazzard?!), she became a judge on Fashion Star, a reality competition series. This would be her first time starring on a scripted show.

Jessica added, “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!”

Robin and Nick Bakay are the developers of the project, which was ordered by NBC.
