Hilary Duff is returning to TV, signing a deal with NBC to star in a new series, reports Variety.

Under terms of the one-year talent and development deal, the network will develop a show starring Duff; the actress will also be tapped to guest star in various current NBC shows.

The Duff series would be produced by Universal Media Studios. The deal was announced by NBC Entertainment/ Universal Media Studios co-chairman Ben Silverman.

Duff will meet with writers and comb through NBC’s development for the right project to star in.

Duff first rose to fame as the star of the Disney Channel’s “Lizzie McGuire” (which later spawned The Lizzie McGuire Movie).
