Portia De Rossi To Star In ABC Sitcom Produced By Wife Ellen DeGeneres

Looks like Ellen is about to become Portia’s boss, in a sort of role-playing way.

Ellen DeGeneres recently scored a pilot order from ABC execs for a new sitcom, perhaps by pimping out her wife as one of the show’s stars. According to the Hollywood Reporter:

The Smart One, one of two projects DeGeneres has in development, centers on a brilliant and successful woman who begrudgingly goes to work for her less-brainy but more popular sister—a former beauty queen, weather girl and now mayor of a big city. De Rossi will play one of the two sisters.

What do you think—will Portia be cast as the dumb sibling or the smart one?
