Rapper Eve has inked a development deal with

UPN to produce her own comedy television series. Under the terms of the deal,

Eve will star in an untitled comedy that will be produced by Edmonds Entertainment.

The show will focus on Eve, who stars as a fashion

designer and her exploits in the New York fashion world. The show will be written

by Bentley Evans, writer for "The Jamie Foxx Show," and "Martin."

"She’s one of those unique artists; she’s

a huge star in the music world, but she also really stands out as an actress,"

UPN entertainment president Dawn Ostroff told the Hollywood Reporter. "When

we saw her in ‘Barbershop,’ we said, ‘Wow, there’s really something there.’

"

The shows executive producers will be Evans,

Tracey Edmonds, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Eve’s manager, Troy

Carter, with Eve serving as a producer.
