Hot on the heels of news of Tyra Banks' new comedy series "Fivehead" comes another development from an elite player in the world of fashion and style.
Rachel Zoe, power stylist and designer for the stars, has announced the sale of a single camera semi-autobiographical comedy to NBC. The untitled series will revolve around a fictional version of herself, a stylist with no formal training who worked to establish herself as an elite and highly sought after designer for clients ranging from Kate Beckinsdale to Demi Moore. She has since ventured into the world of fashion, launching her own 'Rachel Zoe Collection' line of clothing last year.
Aseem Batra, who has penned scripts for NBC comedies "Animal Practice" and "Scrubs," is attached to write the pilot for the series, while Emmy winner Todd Holland ("30 Rock," "Go On") will handle directing duties. The new project is backed by Universal Television with Zoe serving as producer along with husband Rodger Berman.
Zoe currently is featured in her own reality series on Bravo, "The Rachel Zoe Project," which chronicles her exploits in her career and at home as a mother. The series has been one of the cable network's bigger hits and has been renewed for a fifth season.
