Electra joins Fox family

November 19, 2004|by Zap2it.com

Carmen Electra could be headed for her first starring role in a sitcom, thanks in part to Ashton Kutcher.

Electra, currently hosting Bravo's male-model search "Manhunt," has signed a talent deal with 20th Century Fox TV. As part of the deal, she'll star in a comedy pilot for the studio's News Corp. sibling, FOX, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"That '70s Show" star Kutcher will serve as one of the project's executive producers, along with Pete Aronson ("The Bernie Mac Show"). Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson ("Not Another Teen Movie") will write the pilot script, which finds Electra's character marrying into a big Midwestern family.

Should the pilot not get picked up, the studio could then place Electra in one of its other shows.

Electra has hardly lacked for work of late. In addition to "Manhunt," the one-time "Baywatch" star has recently appeared in the feature films "Starsky & Hutch" and "My Boss's Daughter" (which starred Kutcher), starred in an MTV reality series with her husband, Dave Navarro, and logged guest appearances on "Monk," "Method & Red" and "The Mountain."
