Pam Gets a Sitcom

Pamela Anderson (search) will star in a Fox sitcom about a woman who's trying to change her life and break her habit of falling for less-than-responsible men.

Before even reading a completed script, the network committed to six episodes, according to a report in Variety.

Anderson, a former "Baywatch" (search) babe, has had a headline-generating personal life the last few years. Her recent novel, "Star," was a seemingly semi-autobiographical take on the men in her life, who have included ex-husband Tommy Lee and rocker Kid Rock.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show is from writer-producer Steven Levitan, the man behind the NBC sitcom "Just Shoot Me."

Anderson also played a private eye in the syndicated series "V.I.P." from 1998 to 2002, and Lisa, the Tool Time Girl, on "Home Improvement," from 1991-1993. She also appeared in the films "Barb Wire" and "Scary Movie 3," and is a columnist for Jane magazine. She has two sons.
