Is Bridget Jones Heading to the Small Screen?

All you singletons, get ready! Your favorite over-eating diarist is getting her own TV show – but who should play her?

It’s been nearly a decade since we bonded with the lovable – yet totally spastic – always-single British ‘journalist’ named Bridget Jones. Now, ten years after she won our hearts by being a wine-swilling, ice-cream eating, man-shagger (and not ashamed of it!) NBC has joined up with Working Title — the British film company responsible for the films — to give our gal her own weekly TV show, reports the New York Post.

We can only imagine the series will begin with Bridget – heavier than ever and having just slept with her boss — and progress into the still-crazy-but-slightly-more-refined Bridget from the sequel.

Of course, if our dreams came true, NBC would snag Renee Zellweger, 40, to star in the series. Given that Renee is an Oscar winner, that’s probably out. So who could fill her shoes?

Who do YOU think should be the next Bridget Jones?
