Christina Applegate has secured another TV role as she's been tapped to star in ABC's "Sam I Am."
A comedy pilot, "Sam I Am" centers on a woman (Applegate) who wakes up from a coma with amnesia and has to rediscover her life.
Also joining the cast is Emmy winning actress Jean Smart who's been billed to play her self-absorbed mother. Jennifer Esposito was earlier cast as the amnesiac's best friend.
Irish novelist Cecelia Ahern is in hand helping to conceive the story for the pilot.
