Christina Ricci will star in NBC’s comedy pilot Girlfriend in a Coma.
The former Pan Am star will play Karen, a woman who wakes from a years-long coma to discover she has a 17-year-old daughter from a pregnancy she never knew about.
The single-camera project is based on a Douglas Coupland novel. Dick Wolf (Law & Order), Peter Jankowski (Law & Order) and Danielle Gelber (Chicago Fire) will exec-produce, with Liz Brixius (Nurse Jackie) producing and penning the project.
Earlier this season, Ricci guest-starred as a Sarah Silverman-like comedienne on CBS’ The Good Wife. She previously played head stewardess Maggie in ABC’s cancelled Pan Am.

Yesterday, Christina Ricci was out in Los Angeles at the shopping center The Grove. She was there to tape a segment for the news show “Extra” as well as kick off the “Make Up Forever” Make-up Bag Tour. I have just added a total of 364 HQ and MQ images from both events into our photo gallery!
Looks like Christina Ricci will be having a very romantic Valentine’s Day 2013 indeed — because she’s engaged to boyfriend James Heerdegen! The actress, 32, confirmed the news exclusively to Us Weekly on Friday (Feb. 1) at the Grove in L.A., where she helped unveil the Make Up For Ever Remix Make Up Bag and Make Up For Ever Mobile Tour.
The star met dolly grip Heerdegen on the set of her canceled ABC series, with Us Weekly first reporting the relationship back in February 2012. Ricci has been wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring since last October, but had declined to comment on engagement speculation.
Wearing the bauble at Friday’s Make Up For Ever event (Ricci helped design the Makeup Forever Remix bag), she finally fessed up to Us that she and her man got engaged last fall. “Yeah,” the Addams Family alum confirmed, accepting congrats from Us Weekly’s reporter Brody Brown. “[We got engaged] a couple months back.”
Despite the happy news, Ricci and her man don’t have any specific plans for Feb. 14. “Honestly, I was trying to think of that before, I can’t remember’ a single Valentine’s Day!” she said, laughing. “I personally just don’t think I’ve ever made a big deal about Valentine’s Day. I mean. I like to get like flowers.”
The actress and RAINN spokesperson was previously engaged to actor Owen Benjamin; they split in June 2009. Heerdegen has worked on more than 40 film and television productions, including Sex and the City 2, Nurse Jackie, Baby Mama and What Happens in Vegas.
Ricci — who first became a household name as a child star in The Addams Family films and in Mermaids — next stars in this summer’s Smurfs 2.
“I worked so much last year that I just really wanted to have some time off to just kind of live,” she explained. “You kind of need to take time to be a real person.”
Christina Ricci says the inspiration for her Make Up For Ever custom-made cosmetics bag was “hard rock meets couture”.
The actress has taken her first steps into the beauty world with a limited-edition deal with the American company.
The 32-year-old star’s debut collaboration with the LVMH-owned brand is practical, fun and stylish, with her own personal touches embedded in the design.
“I loved collaborating with Make Up For Ever on a custom make-up bag because I got to design something that actually holds everything I need on the go,” Christina explained to WWD. “My inspiration for the bag was hard rock meets couture, and I added a red lip motif to the geometric design since I love wearing red lipstick. Plus I thought it would add a fun pop of colour.”
The make-up bag is a glitzy number, made of black fake leather adorned with gunmetal studs and metallic silk. The collaboration comes as part of the cosmetic company’s Make Up Bag Remix tour campaign, which is intended to teach consumers how to use their make-up in the most effective way.
The nine-city tour will begin in Los Angeles on February 1, which is when make-up fans can get their hands on Christina’s designs first.
The Make Up Bag Remix tour will also sell products to those who come along to the tour, with the brand hoping that they will increase make-up sales as a result of the Christina collaboration.
Cleverly, the make-up bag Christina’s put her mark on also has an inside pocket detail which is exactly the size of the brand’s brand-new Pro Finish compact foundation.
