"The Simple Life" star Nicole Richie has signed a deal that could land her in a TV sitcom
Unlike the title of her reality series "The Simple Life," Nicole Richie would never go simple for a sitcom. Approvingly the star has inked a deal with 20th Century Fox TV which will in the future time allow her to perform in its existing show or have a new show build around her.
Apparently, 20th Century Fox TV doesn't doubt Richie's "comedic instincts" despite the fact that he has never been in a scripted TV show before. "Look at episodes of 'The Simple Life,' where the humor is completely derived by Paris' and Nicole's reaction to situations, consistently Nicole is able to mine comedy in the various episodes." Dana Walden a representative for the channel said.
