Nicole Richie to Star in ABC Comedy


Nicole Richie (“The Simple Life”) will topline a single-camera half-hour comedy in development at ABC, reports Variety.

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; Warren Bell (“According to Jim”) will executive produce and supervise the pilot script.

Richie had the initial idea for the show and will get a producing credit in addition to starring.
