Will Jessica Simpson and daughter Maxwell Drew Johnson along with dad Eric have characters somewhat based on their lives a new TV show?

It appears so.

Jessica Simpson, the new mom and again pregnant 'Fashion Star' mentor - who previously starred in her own reality show with ex-husband Nick Lachey called 'Newlyweds' - has revealed she is filming a new scripted pilot for NBC inspired by her life.

The 32-year-old former singer - who shares an eight-month-old daughter Maxwell with her fiance Eric Johnson - told the Hollywood Reporter: ''I am so excited to work with Ben and NBC again, this time on a scripted comedy. I often find myself thinking that no one could ever make up the things that actually happen in my life -- so between the real-life elements and a great team of writers, I think we'll have people laughing!''

Producer Ben Silverman, who is helping with the pilot, also said: ''Jessica Simpson is truly a modern-day Lucy with incredible comedic chops. From running a fashion empire to wrangling her public image as a new mom, we see Jessica's character approach a variety of 'everyday' circumstances that will get audiences laughing out loud.''

Jessica recently revealed that motherhood is the most ''challenging'' thing she has ever experienced.

The 'Dukes of Hazzard' actress admitted she feels ''awful'' when her work limits the amount of time she can spend with her daughter.

She explained: ''Motherhood is the best thing I've ever experienced - and the most challenging. On some of the days of 'Fashion Star', I'm awake before Maxwell is awake, and I'm not home until she's already back to sleep.

''That's only happened about four times, but it makes the day awful. I definitely need to see my baby. I get really sad if I don't get to see her. And then when Maxwell sees me, she just stares at me and touches my face. I can tell she missed me. That breaks my heart.''
