Nicole Richie Is Coming Back to TV 

Iggy Azalea Signs Production Deal with NBCUniversal
I-G-G-Y is taking her hustle to TV and film.

The former reality star is trying her hand at network comedy.

Nicole Richie has been tapped to replace Kimrie Lewis-Davis for a role on Great News, an upcoming new sitcom on NBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new show follows a mother-daughter relationship that gets complicated when the mom (Andrea Martin) takes an internship at her daughter’s (Briga Heelan) office, a cable news network. Richie will play Portia, the fashionable co-host of the fictional news show which the sitcom centers around. She butts heads with her older, more traditional co-host (played by John Michael Higgins) who wants to produce serious journalism.

Although Richie’s best known for wild younger years on The Simple Life and Candidly Nicole (not counting her flourishing fashion career), but she has acted in Empire and Chuck in minor roles. Great News will be her first series-regular acting job.

The sitcom was written by 30 Rock scribe Tracey Wigfield, with Tina Fey and Robert Carlock executive producing, so it should bring the laffs.
