It's been a minute since Jessica Simpson has done any acting. Well she has been busy building a billion dollar empire, having a baby and being a mentor on Fashion Star.

But the 32-year-old bombshell is now set to return to television in a whole new role in the shape of her own sitcom.

"From running a fashion empire to wrangling her public image as a new mom, we see Jessica's character approach a variety of 'everyday' circumstances that will get audiences laughing out loud."

Jessica, who is pregnant with her second baby, says she is "so excited" for the project.

"I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life," she said in a statement.
