This is just one reason why TV sitcoms suck hard. They will make a sitcom about anything. They will make one about the turd I took this morning and how it works at Starbucks with friends that are in publishing and a girlfriend that’s really neurotic. Actually, that’s not bad. I’ll pitch that to the CW this afternoon. So…speaking of turds..Kellie Pickler of American Idol fame is getting her own sitcom at FOX.
Yup, everyone’s favorite “Awww Shucks” gal is coming to a TV near you. Sick, right? Guess what kind of character she’s going to play? Go ahead, take a little guess. Surgeon you say? Naw. Single mother? Naw, not that either. Literary agent? Unfortunately not. She’s playing a small-town girl. God, those producers are clever!
Pickler will play a naive small-town Southern girl — a character based on herself — who discovers that her biological father is the state’s well-respected governor. His presidential dreams are put in jeopardy, but the two form a father-daughter relationship that winds up helping his standing in the polls.
Producers were apparently really impressed with her “comedic timing” aka “deep throat skills.” Let’s be real. We don’t need another wonky eye on TV!
