It’s been close to four decades since Cher regularly appeared on TV, so Logo’s Brent Zacky, SVP of original programming and development, used the network’s session at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, California on Saturday to announce that a pilot deal had just been signed with the Academy Award-winning actress/singer.

The as-yet-untitled project will be written by Ron Zimmerman, who has been linked romantically with Cher, and will be set in the ’60s.

Cher, whose last TV series, the variety show, “Cher” aired from 1975-1976, most recently starred in the 2010 motion picture “Burlesque.”

Zimmerman’s previous credits include “Shake it Up!,” “The Michael Richards Show” and Pamela Anderson’sV.I.P.”
