Paris Hilton's co-star in 'The Simple Life' is rumored to sign Ashlee Simpson for the half-hour sitcom where she will be credited as a producer.
Nicole Richie reportedly wants to recruit Ashlee Simpson as her co-star on her still-in-development TV show. "Nicole adores Ashlee, and she truly believes in her talent," a source told The National Enquirer.
News that Nicole is developing her own TV show was brought to surface last month. The not-yet-titled show will be a scripted half-hour sitcom that presents her as a "professional woman with complicated family relationships".
Her character, which is actually mirroring her real life, struggles to figure out what role she'll take as her life and her family evolve. The story actually came from Richie herself. That is why she is going to be credited as the producer along with Warren Bell and Jamie Tarses.
The pilot script which is written by "Californication" scribe Daisy Gardner, will be supervised by Warren. Up to date, this show is yet to have a premiere date.
