The always fabulous Cher is returning to TV! The star of "The Sony and Cher Comedy Hour" has signed a development deal with the LGBT-centric network Logo for a pilot script. The pilot, which will be penned with comedian Robert Zimmerman, will be set in early-1960s Hollywood. The network is unsure whether or not Cher will actually appear in the drama or if she will simply be behind the scenes. Little has been said about the actual show itself, although Logo network senior VP of original programming Brent Zacky has mentioned that he thinks the script is really terrific and is very excited about the project.
This new endeavor comes at a time in which Logo is looking for more original scripted programming. Home to the cult favorite reality competition series, “RuPaul’s Drag Race”, Logo has aired a number of original programs in the past, including “Exes and Ohs”, “Noah’s Arc”, and “Sordid Lives”. In addition, Logo will be airing syndicated repeats of “Nip/Tuck” and “Golden Girls”. The network has also mentioned that they are interested in working with Cher on unscripted content as well.
I’m personally very curious for the Cher/Zimmerman project, which I’m hoping may turn into an extremely fabulous version of “Mad Men”. But what I really want to know is this: When is Cher going to guest judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race”? Imagine how epic that episode will be!
