Nicole Richie ABC comedy pilot Nicole Richie isn't done dancing with ABC -- the reality star and mom has just received another commitment from the network for a comedy series.

In December, Richie teamed up with "30 Rock" scribe Daisy Gardner to develop a show about a mom balancing her personal and professional life. This time around, power lady and former ABC entertainment head Jamie Tarses will produce. The news was first reported by 

A rep for Richie confirms that the new Tarses-lead project has a "similar concept" to the idea introduced last year.

Richie should know a thing or two about working moms; she's appeared on scripted fare including NBC's "Chuck" and HBO's "Six Feet Under," and designs her own jewelry and clothing collections.

The mother of two -- daughter Harlow and son Sparrow, with rocker Joel Madden -- also knows a thing or two about being a mama bear. The actress on Wednesday was granted a temporary restraining order against a paparazzo she says is lurking around Harlow's preschool.
