'iCarly' star joining Christina Ricci's new NBC series


Congratulations to Christina Ricci on her new daughter! Well, new "old" daughter, as the case were.

The actress, who was recently announced as the star of NBC's newest comedy, Girlfriend in a Coma (that sounds like a fun show), will be joined on the series by iCarly alum Miranda Cosgrove, who will play her daughter, Evie.

The series tells the story of Karen (Ricci), who wakes up from an extended coma and is stunned to learn she has a 17-year-old daughter. Evie is a loner and ridiculed as being the daughter of "Coma Lady." Karen waking up throws Evie's world for a loop and drastically changes her plans of saving some cash and preparing to move out of the state for college.

The show is a single-camera comedy and is based on a book by Douglas Coupland. 

In addition to iCarly, Cosgrove has appeared on Drake & Josh and the film "School of Rock," and her voice can be heard as Margo in the Despicable Me film series (the next one comes out July 3). 

I am not familiar with Cosgrove's acting, but she does look like she could be Ricci's daughter, at least. 

I hope this show does well, as Ricci deserves some success. This seems like a really dumb idea to me, though. I hope I am wrong and it is fantastic.
