Nicole Richie Set To Star In ABC Scripted Comedy

What?

Nicole Richie, the former reality-TV star is set to star and produce a single-camera half-hour sitcom, based on her idea, in development at ABC.

The script, which is being produced through Sony Pictures TV, would feature Richie as a professional woman with complicated family relationships and struggling to figure out what role she’ll take as her life and her family evolve.

Daisy Gardner (Californication) is set to write the comedy – that’s good; Warren Bell (According to Jim) will exec produce and supervise the pilot script – that’s bad.

So do you think Nicole Richie brought enough funny to The Simple Life to headline a half-hour comedy on ABC? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
