Jenna Elfman is set to star in "Literary Superstar" for ABC.
Jenna Elfman is a TV and film star herself, yet for ABC she's "Literary Superstar."
The beauty is slated to appear in the new comedy, playing a book publicist who's intensely loyal to her clients. And so the story goes as budget cuts threaten her publishing house, she stands up to the corporate suits, and successfully lobbies for the right to continue working with smaller, quirkier authors.
Darren Star is producing the comedy project, with bestselling Australian novelist Matthew Reilly in hand writing.
Together, the two persons will co-executive produce. Production on "Literary Superstar" is scheduled to begin this fall soon after Elfman gives birth to her baby.
