TVGuide reports that Jessica Simpson is set to portray a 'version of herself' in a comedy currently being developed at NBC. The project is being described as a "Curb Your Enthusiasm-style look at her life."
According to the report, producers will film a "presentation", which is not quite a pilot but contains enough footage to be considered for next season's programming line-up for the network.
Simpson previously starred as herself in the MTV reality series 'Newleyweds: Nick and Jessica.' From there, a potential sitcom at ABC in 2004 faultered and led the star to focus on her growing financial empire instead, which includes a clothing line and endorsement deals. The pop star currently serves as a mentor on NBC's Fashion Star, which returns for its second season on March 8.
Simpson recently announced that she is pregnant with her second child, a condition which will apparently be worked into the show. The first episode is expected to film sometime around the birth of her child.
