Nicole Richie is preparing to launch an acting career as the star of a new TV sitcom.

The former Simple Life star is returning to the small screen for a half-hour show, which she pitched to bosses at ABC.

The mom of two will produce the series, in which she'll star as a working woman juggling her family and love life, reports Variety.

It's not the first time the 28-year-old has tried her hand at acting -- she's notched up guest appearances on TV hit Chuck, as well as 8 Simple Rules and American Dreams.
