If you thought Nicole Richie's reality show was a bit too scripted, what about a scripted show that seems true to life?

The Hollywood socialite, 28, is developing an ABC sitcom in which she would both star and produce. Variety says the show will use a single camera, and the concept was Richie's idea.

Daisy Gardner (Californication) is due to write it, while Warren Bell (According to Jim) will executive produce and supervise the pilot script, reports the trade paper.

"The story revolves around a young, modern and professional woman who must balance her business and family relationships," Richie writes on her Web site. "She must deal with, and navigate the many ideas of what a woman's role is: modern vs. traditional."



The mother of two says she'll use what she sees in her real life to create the show. (Besides this ABC project, Richie is at work on her second novel, not to mention the unveiling of her clothing and shoe labels).

"Lately, I have been surrounded by many different women of all ages and walks of life. It amazes me to watch and observe how many different ideas there are about what a woman’s role should be in this era," she writes.


"I've taken these fascinating ideas, and compiled them into something that I think will be very special (and funny!). We’re still in the very early stages and I can’t wait to share more with you soon!"
