Jessica Simpson is teaming up with NBC to bring a sitcom inspired by her life to your TV.

The comedy will be written by Nick Bakay who wrote "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" starring Kevin James.

Simpson's rep did not have any details on a title or when it will premiere.

Ben Silverman, chairman of Electus, which is producing the show, calls Simpson a "modern day Lucy with incredible comedic shops."

The announcement comes weeks after Simpson's newest Weight Watchers ad debuted announcing her second prenancy.
