Joe Simpson Developing TV Comedy For Nickelodeon
Joe Simpson — father and manager of Hollywood’s Ashlee and Jessica Simpson — is developing a Nickelodeon comedy loosely based on his life as a psychologist raising two daughters in Texas. The untitled project centers on one of the daughters, who begins imitating her father and doling out life advice to her classmates at school.
This isn’t Joe’s first tango with television producing; in addition to steering a series of TV projects for his famous daughters, the notorious stage dad also contributed to the now-defunct ABC drama Women’s Murder Club. Simpson worked as a minister and shrink before leaving work to help Jessica and Ashlee navigate their careers.
