Sherri Shepherd to star in new CW sitcom
New View cohost Sherri Shepherd is going to star in a new sitcom for The CW.
The show will be about a woman who discovers that her hubby has cheated on her and has a kid with another woman. The other family moves in with them (wacky sitcom premise!) and then the gang travels around the world, trying to prove that the earth is flat.
Actually, Shepherd has been great in everything I've seen her in, from Less Than Perfect to a guest role on Friends (she played a museum employee who befriended Joey) to her guest spots on 30 Rock as Tracy's wife. I didn't realize that the plot of this new sitcom mirrors something that happened in Shepherd's own life (her husband had an affair and a child with someone else), so that adds an interesting wrinkle to the project.
And if you're wondering: yup, she'll continue on The View too.
