“We are thrilled to team up with the multitalented Jessica Simpson to bring this new sitcom to life on NBC as she is truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops," Electus founder and chairman Ben Silverman said. "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."
And the32-year-old couldn’t be more excited!
"I am so excited to work with Ben and NBC again, this time on a scripted comedy,” she says in a statement. “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!"

Jess will certainly bring her acting chops to the table. Along with starring on reality shows such as MTV’s Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica and as a mentor on NBC’s Fashion Star, the singer had a three-episode stint on That ‘70s Show in 2002.
Plus, she’s starred in five flicks, including The Dukes of Hazzard and Employee of the Month, since 2005.
It’s safe to say this multi-talented A-lister will bring her A-game to her newest venture—and we can’t wait to check it out!
