It looks like Nicole Richie is heading back to the small screen after all!
The 28-year-old actress announced the big news on her website:
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 series 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.
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!
Earlier this week rumors had spread that she and husband Joel Madden were in discussions to star in a home-based, interview style reality show. The couple quickly dispelled the false reports when Joel tweeted: “We aren’t doing a reality show. We keep work and family seperate.”
