It looks like Cher may be headed back to TV. LGBT oriented network Logo has announced they have signed a development deal with the legendary singer and actress. 40 years ago the Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour starring Cher and her ex-husband Sonny Bono was a top 10 ratings success on TV. There are no specific details on the deal, but Billboard is reporting that Logo senior vp for original programming Brent Zacky has indicated the deal is with Cher and comedian Ron Zimmerman to develop a pilot script set in early 1960s Hollywood. It is unclear whether Cher would have an acting role in the project.
2013 was already looking to be a big year for Cher. An album of new music is expected sometime during the year. This will be her first new studio album in more than 11 years. A single "Woman's World" was unveiled last fall. Cher first hit the pop top 40 almost 50 years ago in 1965 with the #15 "All I Really Want To Do." Reportedly she also plans to embark on the Never Can Say Goodbye concert tour to support the release of her new music.
