Emmy nominated Top Chef hostess Padma Lakshmi is cooking up a new project. Variety reports that Lakshmi plans to star in an upcoming NBC sitcom. With the possible title of Single Serving, the thirty-minute comedy will feature Lakshmi as a female working in the culinary industry. The show is still in the initial stages with Padma and executive producer, Charlie Corwin, scouting writers and talking details. Although she's known mostly for her role on Top Chef, Padma's had several small acting roles. She appeared on ABC's The Ten Commandments miniseries and played a singer in Mariah Carey's ill-fated Glitter. I'm very interested to see where this show goes and am curious to check out Padma: the actress!
How do you feel about the news? Would you watch Padma star in a sitcom?
