Jessica Simpson: My life is a comedy

Get ready for more "chicken of the sea" moments! Jessica Simpson will be starring in a semi-autobiographical sitcom on NBC. 

It was announced on Tuesday that Universal Television is co-producing the pilot for NBC with Electus. In a press release, Electus Founder and Chairman Ben Silverman said, "We are thrilled to team up with the multi-talented Jessica Simpson to bring this new sitcom to life on NBC as she is truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops." Well, every Lucy needs a Desi, but there is no word yet on the rest of the cast or the title of the show.

As for Simpson, she thinks the comedy will leave audiences in stitches. "I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life -- so between the real-life elements and a great team of writers, I think we'll have people laughing," said Simpson in a statement released by Electus
