Hurley lands gig on Gossip Girl

Liz Hurley will play a media mogul on Gossip Girl

Elizabeth Hurley is set for a new TV gig - on Gossip Girl.

The supermodel-turned-actress will play Diana Payne, described as "a sexy, smart, self-made media mogul and all-around force to be reckoned with", who would make her mark on the hit series' conniving characters including the mysterious Gossip Girl herself in the upcoming fifth season.

"Elizabeth's sense of humour, intelligence and beauty fit the GG world perfectly. We feel very fortunate to have her," the show's executive producers Stephanie Savage and Joshua Safran told TVLine.

Liz - who has her own beachwear collection - had been set to appear as villainess Veronica Cale in a Wonder Woman reboot, but US network NBC decided not to pick up the show.

The 46-year-old, whose big screen efforts have not received critical acclaim, will have a recurring appearance in Gossip Girl.

Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
