Kelly Brook playing for laughs in new US comedy

Celebrity Juice regular Kelly Brook has landed her first potentially regular leading role in an American comedy series.

Kelly, 34, is set to star in a new NBC comedy pilot called One Big Happy.

The show tells the story of two platonic friends who have known each other since childhood and are trying to have a baby via artificial insemination, reports the Mirror.

Elisha Cuthbert will play lesbian Lizzy, with Nick Zano as her straight male best friend and housemate, Luke.

But just as the couple finally get pregnant, Luke falls for the woman of his dreams…  Enter Kelly Brook.

The only complication (aside from him having a baby with his lesbian friend) is that Kelly’s character Prudence is about to be deported.

Obviously the only answer is for the pair to marry, creating an unconventional family unit and some slightly awkward sitcom-ready situations.

This would be Brook’s first regular US TV appearance since playing Victoria Hardwick on Smallville in 2002.
