Everybody’s favorite Pan Am stewardess is heading back to TV.
Christina Ricci is near a deal for the starring role in NBC’s comedy pilot Girlfriend in a Coma. She’ll play Karen, who wakes up from a coma to find out she has a 17-year-old daughter from a pregnancy she was unaware of when her life was put on hold. The show is from Nurse Jackie co-creator Liz Brixius and based on Douglas Coupland’s novel.
Ricci was last seen as a series regular on ABC’s Pan Am. Since, the Speed Racer and Sleepy Hollow actress also had a guest-star role on CBS’ The Good Wife.
And yes, you’re going to have that Smiths song in your head for the next half hour. I know, I know, it’s serious. Nothing to be done.
