Sherri Shepherd Lands New Gig

Sherri Shepherd is headed back to the small screen for an NBC pilot entitled The Trail.

The comedy, which is a spoof of documentary shows such as Netflix’s Making a Murderer, follows a big time lawyer and his wacky defense team during a high profile murder trial.

The former The View co-host will play Anne Flatch, an assistant to the attorney, who suffers from facial blindness―the inability to recognize people by their faces.

That’s not her only disorder though. She has some other ailments that make her job and her co-worker’s tasks way more difficult.

No word yet on when production will begin, so stay tuned.
