Female produced, diverse and hilarious, this new show sounds too good to be true

Priyanka Chopra is the 35 year-old star who upped sticks after 12 years in Bollywood to pursue acting in America.

Since her 2015 move she has gained international fame (though she was already a household name in India of course), starring in the ABC show Quantico, which made her the first South Asian to headline an American network series.

After two years in the international eye she has already been named the second most beautiful woman in the world (first place went to Beyoncé, obviously) and became a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador because of her relentless work for her charity, 'The Priyanka Chopra Foundation for Health and Education' which she donates 10 percent of her earnings to.

Alongside acting and being beautiful both inside and out (oh, she can also sing btw), Chopra produces films.

And her next project looks like it's going to be a goodie.

Variety reports that her new show will 'follow a former Bollywood star who settles down in the suburbs of America with her bi-cultural family and tries to bring her colourful lifestyle to an otherwise dull town.'

The story is based on the experience of Madhuri Dixit, the 50 year-old Bollywood star of films like Hum Aapke Hain Koun…!

Dixit is co-producing the show alongside Chopra, and is relatively unknown outside of South Asia, despite her huge success in Hindi film.

Dixit actually moved to Denver for 10 years, where she was able to live a 'normal' life, out of the public eye.

She said of her time there:

'When I was with my family in Denver I was happy being unknown. I enjoyed being on my own and taking my car out for grocery shopping — I loved doing that — taking my kids to school, dropping them off, picking them up. I enjoy the other side too. I enjoy my job. I enjoy being on the sets and doing what I do best.'

Chopra and Dixit's show is set to be a comedy, and we can totally see why, we're thinking it could be something between Desperate Housewives meets The Simple Life, but more diverse.
