From The Hollywood Reporter:


Sex and the City star Kristin Davis is set to star in a new NBC project that would mark her return to series television.

NBC has picked up Davis' The Happiness Project, based on the best-selling memoir by Gretchen Rubin about a woman's quest to become a happier person.

The single-camera, half-hour project will be produced by Universal Media Studios and Mosaic.

Kristin Newman (Chuck, How I Met Your Mother) is in negotiations to write the pilot and executive produce. Jimmy Miller and Dave Fleming will also executive produce.

Rubin was once a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. She embarked on a year-long quest to make herself happier, trying out scientific studies and pop culture wisdom. She documented her experiments on her blog.

The project was packaged by UTA.

Yes, it's true -- Kristin Davis! NBC! Kristin Newman! Yay! I am very happy. More info to come.
