Kellie Pickler Signed Development Deal with 20th Century Fox



Fox is developing a half-hour comedy revolving around "American Idol" finalist Kellie Pickler.

If singing isn't a brand new thing for Kellie Pickler, acting is. The American country music singer, who finished sixth on the fifth season of American Idol, is eager to give the field a try.

Thus, Kellie has inked a development deal with 20th Century Fox, which has planned a half-hour comedy revolving around the songbird.

In the as yet untitled show, the singer will play a naive small-town Southern girl, a character based on herself, who discovers that her biological father is the state's well-respected governor. His presidential dreams are put in jeopardy, but the two form a father-daughter relationship that winds up helping his standing in the polls.

20th Century Fox work on the project along with Watson Pond's Brad Johnson and 19 Entertainment's Simon Fuller and Malcolm Young, all set to serve as executive producers. Chris Peterson and Bryan Moore, in addition, will write and create the project.
