Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and her 'A Very Good Production' company will now be producing a brand new NBC sitcom. This will be the 54-year-old's third scripted series since being involved with "Ellen" and "The Ellen Show."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the latest Warner Bros. television project has not been named nor has an official premise. It will reportedly be about a 32-year-old female who becomes fearful over her future after settling down and closing on her very own home. Upon noticing that she is checked off as a "single woman" on the paperwork, she becomes increasingly convinced that she may forever be alone. Due to the worry, she leans on her friends, family and a therapist to reassure her that she hasn't made the wrong decision.

"The Ellen Show" producer Lauren Pomerantz is said to be attached to pen DeGeneres' latest show. There has been no confirmation as of yet on whether or not the star will appear on screen.
Now in its 10th season, DeGeneres has taken her current television talk show to unprecedented heights. Aside from her infamous dancing and jokes, DeGeneres has used her program as a platform for serious discussions with many politicians as well as actors. A wide array of public figures ranging from Justin Timberlake to Barack Obama have graced her stage, amongst many other notables.
DeGeneres' success has not been without its share of hurdles. Upon coming out about being gay on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 1997, "Ellen" had suffered a ratings decline and was eventually cancelled. However, in 2003, she found her talk show niche and seemingly gained overnight success.
With over 13 million Twitter followers, DeGeneres is now considered a mainstream television star. She also worked on "American Idol" in 2007-2008 as one of the judges for one season, but left because it "didn't feel like the right fit."
