Cher developing TV series for Logo

Cher is heading back to the small screen.

The music legend, who last starred on "The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour"40 years ago, is working on a TV pilot. The gay icon is in development with Logo, an LGBT-centric cable channel, on a period drama, set in 1960s Hollywood.

Cher is working with veteran TV writer Ron Zimmerman on the show and while she is currently attached as writer, she may also co-star.

Logo's Senior Vice President of Original Programming Brent Zacky made the announcement about Cher's potential show at the 2013 Television Critics Association Press Tour on Saturday.

"We read some of the stuff that Cher and Ron had written and it was really terrific," Zacky told The Hollywood Reporter. "The deal is brand-new and we're just getting started on the project ... We're very carefully and hopefully diligently taking a few shots in this arena and we'll see how it pans out. We're certainly excited to be in business with an icon like Cher."
