Shedding for the Wedding might have been a bust, but the CW is putting their weight behind Sara Rue once again, but this time in the realm of scripted TV.

The network confirms to EW that the former Less Than Perfect star is developing multi-camera comedy with the CW, in which Rue will star as Lucy, a young woman who decides to marry her female best friend in order to circumvent her co-ops rules against roommates. Rue will also co-executive produce the project alongside Alan David, her longtime manager. Whether we see Rue’s comedy on the small screen will remain to be seen — the project, which is only in its script stage, is still in very early stages of development.

Rue, who currently appears on CBS’s Rules of Engagement, last worked with the net last season as host for Shedding for the Wedding, a reality weight loss show that completed its eight-episode first season in April before not being picked up for a second season. [Via THR]
