Jenna Elfman is set to star in Darren Star's new comedy, Literary Superstar for ABC.
She'll play a book publicist who's intensely loyal to her clients, reports Variety. When budget cuts threaten her publishing house, she stands up to the corporate suits - and successfully lobbies for the right to continue working with smaller, quirkier authors. In addition to focusing on different authors each week, the show will also will explore Elfman's character as she pursues love and happiness.
Matthew Reilly is writing the pilot, and will co-executive produce with Star; production on Literary Superstar is scheduled to begin in this fall, after Elfman delivers her baby.
