Nick Lachey has signed a deal with the WB to become a newlywed again. This time it will be in a scripted sitcom instead of (scripted) reality program. AP reports:

Lachey is set to play a baseball star navigating a new marriage in a pilot for the WB network, spokesman Paul McGuire said Monday. Danny Jacobson, co-creator of "Mad About You," has been tapped to write the show.

It will begin taping in April and hopefully be part of WB's fall '06 lineup. I am looking forward to seeing who will be cast as his wife. Good for Nick for bouncing back with some big business news in the wake of the separation. People are saying how he is over now that him and Jessica have split. While I am the naive one who will hold out for their undying love to get them back together somehow, I am also very pleased to see Nick and his people working overtime to make his place in the world not just about being one half of the Simpson family. This must be killing Joe Simpson.

He was also out on the town now that he is single. With his brother for support and fellow single guy, A.J. DiScala, Nick has had no problem partying up with the boys. I'm sure the ladies are all over him more now than ever.
