CELEBRITY stylist Rachel Zoe is said to have created a comedy series based on herself.

It looks like self-deprecation is the hottest new trend. Following Tyra Bank's' announcement that her forehead had inspired her to write an autobiographical sitcom , super-skinny super-stylist Rachel Zoe is also said to be boarding the self-inspired comedy bandwagon.

Zoe and her husband, Rodger Berman, have reportedly sold a single-camera comedy to US channel NBC which is based on a fictional version of her. The couple will executive produce the project, whilst Aseem Batra will write the scripts and Emmy winner Todd Holland will direct, reports .

Zoe found fame as the stylist behind the Hollywood's biggest leading ladies - such as Jennifer Garner, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. She became known for the signature boho-chic style she imparted on her subjects, with oversized sunglasses, jewellery and handbags paired with loose-fitting tops and skinny denim becoming quickly associated with her. She was also accused of making many of her clients into 'Zoebots' by encouraging them to loose weight, although she has always denied this.

The LA-based stylist currently has her own reality show, The Rachel Zoe Project , which airs on Bravo and follows her in her day-to-day work.

Last year she launched her eponymous clothing line, but was left disappointed last month when UK store Selfridges announced that they would not continue to stock it following poor sales.
