Nick Bakay (Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Zookeeper and 'Til Death) will pen the script and executive produce alongside Electus' Ben Silverman and Jess' dad, Joe Simpson.

"I am so excited to work with Ben and NBC again," Jessica said. "I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life."

"Between the real-life elements and a great team of writers, I think we'll have people laughing!"

Electus founder and chairman Ben Silverman added:

"We are thrilled to team up with the multitalented Jessica Simpson to bring this new sitcom to life on NBC as she is truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops."

"From running a fashion empire to her public image as a new mom, Jessica's character [will] approach a variety of 'everyday' circumstances that will get audiences laughing out loud."

Simpson's life has largely been spent in the public eye, from her early pop music success to MTV reality show Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica and beyond.

Recently, the now 32-year-old has starred in to other reality shows, Jessica Simpson's The Price of Beauty on VH1 NBC/Electus' Fashion Star.

She signed on for an ABC pilot, Jessica, in 2004 that did not make it to series. What do you think? Will you give her new show a shot or pass?

Jessica Simpson Quotes

They're just the cutest couple in the world. They are adorable. Anybody would wish to be them and you can only wish them well. Just being around them inspires love and everything I sing about.

Jessica Simpson [on her sister and Pete Wentz]

It’s fun to do a small film that might be released to DVD not because it’s a horrible film, but because it’s an independent film. For people to say Employee of the Month was a flop is ludicrous. We made the money back–that’s not a flop. For people to say The Dukes of Hazzard was a flop–it opened to $30 million! If these movies are flops, why would I still make them?
