Nicole Richie announced on her blog yesterday that she is working on her own TV show.
“I am so excited to announce that I am officially working on a television project! I am creating a half hour scripted comedy for ABC in which I will be starring in, as well as producing.”
“The story revolves around a young, modern and professional woman who must balance her business and family relationships. She must deal with, and navigate the many ideas of what a woman’s role is: modern vs. traditional.”
Nicole is no stranger to TV–in addition to starring in five seasons of “A Simple Life,” Nicole has had guest roles on “Chuck,” “8 Simple Rules,” “American Dreams” and “Eve.” She will be producing as well as starring in the as-yet-unnamed show. Variety reports that also working on the show is Daisy Gardner, (“Californication”), Warren Bell (“According to Jim”), and Jamie Tarses, formerly head of entertainment at ABC.
Nicole also dished about the inspiration behind the show: “Lately, I have been surrounded by many different women of all ages and walks of life. It amazes me to watch and observe how many different ideas there are about what a woman’s role should be in this era. I’ve taken these fascinating ideas, and compiled them into something that I think will be very special (and funny!). We’re still in the very early stages and I can’t wait to share more with you soon!”
In addition to this TV project, Richie is currently working on her second novel and debut of her clothing and shoe collections. She is one busy little mamma-congrats Nicole!
