Sandra Bullock: 'Gravity' Star Making A Miss Congeniality TV Show
Space cadet Sandra Bullock is back on earth and ready to have fun with her favorite person, Miss Congeniality.
Bullock plans to make Congeniality a weekly staple on America's television sets. The Oscar winning actress is set to produce a TV comedy series based on the beloved Miss Congeniality, Radar reported.
Bullock "is planning on producing a comedic TV version of her smash movie series Miss Congeniality that's being described as Bridesmaids Meets 24," a source told Radar. "Sandra just feels like it's time to bring this story to a new generation!"
Bullock's love of Miss Congeniality—who the actress believes inspires women everywhere—also motivated Bullock to make the show.
"Sandra loved her Miss Congeniality FBI agent character Gracie Hart and the concept so much that for years she has continued to keep up friendships with FBI agents she met while researching it," the source said. "Sandra loves that real FBI agents, particularly female ones, continue to respond to and write her letters about both Miss Congeniality and The Heat."
It's not Bullock's first time behind the camera. She previously produced "The George Lopez Show" from 2002 to 2007, and "All About Steve" in 2009.
One source described Bullock's upcoming Congeniality show as "'Bridesmaids' Meets '24.'"
Bullock has starred in several comedies, including "The Heat," "All About Steve" and "The Proposal." She is also an accomplished dramatic actress, winning an Academy Award in 2012 for "The Blind Side."
She was nominated for an Oscar this year for "Gravity," but was ousted by Cate Blanchett.
