Sarah Jessica Parker's new TV role

Sarah Jessica Parker could be returning to TV - to play a reporter.

The Sex And The City actress is attached to play a lead role in new show Busted, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The show will be based on the non-fiction book Busted: A Tale Of Corruption And Betrayal In The City Of Brotherly Love.

The book was penned by Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporters Wendy Ruderman and Barbara Laker, and tells how they uncovered a police scandal in Philadelphia.

David Frankel, whose credits include The Devil Wears Prada and Marley And Me as well as episodes of Sex And The City, is attached to direct and executive produce the pilot.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, which optioned the rights to the book, said: "Wendy and Barbara have written an amazing true story, and we're thrilled for it to be SKE's first television project. Sarah Jessica's coming on board, along with David Frankel and Don Roos (who is writing the pilot) is simply a perfect combination that we couldn't be happier about."
