Date: 24th January 2001
American actress JENNIFER ANISTON is to star in a brand new sitcom - on the internet.
The FRIENDS star has signed a deal with American teen website VOXXY (WWW.VOXXY.COM) to appear in and produce a 13-part comedy called JEN XX. Each episode will be half-an-hour long and will include an 'interactive' element where the actress chats online with her adoring fans - three of whom will even get a chance to meet and star alongside Jennifer on the show, as the winners of a competition run by Voxxy.
The gorgeous babe gushes, "I'm looking forward to interacting directly with the audience and getting to say things I can't say on network TV. "It'll provide a platform which cuts through the hype and allows me to speak honestly with teenagers about anything from self-image and social politics to family and friends." Hollywood heavyweight Jennifer agreed to appear in the rather low-profile project as a favour to the website's co-founder MAXINE LAPIDUS, who is a close personal friend. (KW/VT/RGS)
