Move over Drag Race, there might just be a new must-see series coming to Logo: According to The Hollywood Reporter Cher has signed a deal to create a new original series for the network.
The premise and name of the show aren’t nailed down yet but it’s said to be set in Hollywood in the 1960s—so we’re talking “Beat Goes On”-era Cher. Logo picked up a pilot script created by the Oscar winner and onetime beau Ron Zimmerman, who’s worked on shows like Charles in Charge, Seventh Heaven and My Wife and Kids.
“We read some of the stuff that Cher and Ron had written and it was really terrific,” Logo’s Senior VP of original programming, Brent Zacky, told THR. “We came up with an idea set in Hollywood in the early ’60s and we’re very excited to see how we get through the process.”
Zimmerman and Cher dated as recently as 2010, when the diva revealed that they met on Facebook. “[On my friend’s page] there was this really funny guy, who said the weirdest things,” she told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show. “Like, under religion, it said ‘Zeus.’ He’s very strange but the funniest person you ever met.”
