Amnesia brings Christina Applegate back to television

christina applegateChristina Applegate is the "it" girl right now in television. When casting directors look for sitcom stars, she's always at the top of their list.

Well, Christina finally found something she likes. She has signed on to star in an ABC comedy pilot called Sam I Am, where she'll play an amnesia victim who has to rediscover her life. It's the first starring television role for Applegate since the late '90s. Of course, she was the legendary Kelly Bundy on Married, With Children, from 1987-1997. Since then she starred in 1998's short-lived Jesse, and won an Emmy for a guest-starring role on Friends. Otherwise, she's stuck to movies for the last ten years.

Jean Smart, formerly of Designing Women and 24, has also taken a role in the comedy, and Jennifer Esposito will co-star as Applegate's best friend.

According to both the Wiki and TV.com, Jesse last aired in the Spring of 2000. I was pretty certain it lasted longer than just '98 but I had to look to be certain.
