Spice Girl meets 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' in new teaser clip -- VIDEO

Newsflash: Geri Halliwell, a.k.a. Ginger Spice, is making a comedy show in the proud vein of Tori Spelling’s So NoTORIous, Kirstie Alley’s Fat Actress, and Christine Lakin’s Lovin’ Lakin. You know, the “quasi-celebrity plays version of herself for laughs” genre – sort of like Curb Your Enthusiasm, but a little sadder and a lot less funny.

In this first NSFW teaser for the series – evidently titled Geri: Life Sucks – the Girl Power guru lies in bed with a hunky dude. Everything seems perfect… until he reveals that he’s been working toward a certain icky goal ever since seeing Spice World 15 (!) years ago.

There isn’t much more information about Geri: Life Sucks available beyond the clip; Halliwell herself has issued only a few coy tweets about it.

A spokesperson for Objective Productions also offered this statement to the Daily Mail: “We are currently developing an idea for a TV show with Geri Halliwell in which she laughs gamely at herself and her fame. The comedy will see Geri try to balance the everyday pressures of being a mother and an international pop sensation.”

International pop sensation? Guess the series really is fictionalized.
