"American Pie's" Natasha Lyonne to Star in Comedy Series Based On Her Life

American Pie star Natasha Lyonne is headed to Fox. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress has signed on to produce and star in a single-camera comedy loosely based on her life for the network.

The show is untitled for now, but it follows a woman named Stella (portrayed by Lyonne) who is forced to move in with her conservative brother and his family after leaving rehab and committing to living a sober, responsible adult life. Lyonne herself was arrested for a DUI in 2001, and she took part in a court-ordered drug program after pleading guilty to drunk driving.

Rules of Engagement's Alex Barnow and Marc Firek are set to write and executive produce the series.
