Electra developing at WB

Actress leaving 'Baywatch' for new gig

Actress Carmen Electra is leaving syndie series “Baywatch” to enter a development deal at the WB netlet.

The deal is to develop drama or comedy series, but the WB currently is developing a comedy script for Electra from MTV Prods. and Paramount.

The sitcom, to be written by Jeffrey Hodes and Nastram DiBai (“The Nanny”), would be loosely based on Electra’s life and would explore an adult father-daughter relationship. If the comedy script doesn’t work out though, the WB is interested in putting Electra in a drama project at some point next year.

Electra previously was host of MTV’s dating gameshow “Singled Out,” and she’s the second female co-host of that show to pursue a sitcom deal. Jenny McCarthy tried her hand at comedy on NBC, but the show never caught fire.

Aside from her TV work, Electra is starring with Loren Dean in the upcoming indie pic “Dust and Stardust” from Bandeira Prods., and she appeared in the pic “Good Burger.” Electra is repped by Chris Coelen and Rob Kim at UTA.
