FOX is moving ahead with a sitcom project for actress Tara Reid, hiring “American Dreams” creator Jonathan Prince to write the pilot.
Prince will also serve as an executive producer of the project, which has a script commitment at the network, according to the Hollywood trade papers. Warner Bros. TV will produce.
The show’s premise is a wink at Reid’s party-girl reputation: She’ll play a wild child who promises to clean up her ways for the sake of her family and friends. The project is a result of a holding deal the “American Pie” star signed with FOX earlier this year.
Should the show make it to series, it will be Reid’s first regular prime-time role. She had a recurring part on NBC’s “Scrubs” last season.
Prince worked on several sitcoms before creating “American Dreams” for NBC in 2002. The former actor’s writing and producing credits include “Blossom” and the short-lived, late-1990s series “Grown Ups” and “Ask Harriet.”
