Sherri Shepherd, co-host of ABC’s The View, will star in an untitled multicamera comedy for Lifetime, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Loosely based on Shepherd’s own life, the series will revolve around a woman who, after learning of her husband’s infidelity and illegitimate child, allows both child and mother to move in with them. The series didn’t get a go-ahead at The CW after the 2007-8 development season. Lifetime is half-owned by ABC Studios’ parent company, Disney.
