Socialite Nicole Richie is returning to TV – the former The Simple Life star has landed her own comedy.
Richie has reportedly signed a deal with the ABC network to star in a scripted comedy about a professional working mom.

The mother-of-two, who came up with the initial idea for the show herself, will serve as a producer, along with her manager Michael Baum, reports

Richie rose to fame as a reality TV star with her pal Paris Hilton after appearing in The Simple Life. She has since made several small screen cameos, including a recent two-episode stint on NBC’s Chuck.
