Well, one of the ‘Sex and the City’ stars is returning to her TV roots! Kristin Davis has signed on to star in the new NBC comedy project ‘The Happiness Project,’ which is based on the best-selling memoir Gretchen Rubin, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Rubin’s memoir chronicles the New York-based writer’s account of the year she spent test-driving studies and theories about how to be happier. It also spawned a popular blog whose fans included Davis, which is how the actress got involved in the TV project. NBC’s The Happiness Project, whose protagonist played by Davis will also be on a year-long quest to become happier, has received a script commitment.
Kristin seems perfect for this role, doesn’t she? She’d be believable without becoming too saccharine.
But she isn’t leaving the big screen behind altogether. Kristin has also signed on to star opposite Dwayne Johnson and Michael Caine in ‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’ (the sequel to ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D’).
I’m excited to hear about these projects, especially ‘The Happiness Project.’ I hope it manages to get picked up as a series! Have you read the book or followed the website?
