Hilary Duff headed to NBC, getting her own show

Duff Man is here! Err, Duff woman. Hilary Duff has signed a deal with NBC, according to Variety, and now her soul belongs to Ben Silverman. The former child star will be featured in a new series (to be determined) and be booked to guest star on a handful of NBC programs. Hopefully, she'll play KITT's girlfriend in Knight Rider.

Duff will work with NBC peeps and sift through various projects that the network has in development for her own series, though it's unclear which genre they're shooting for. Duff previously tried television for CBS in 2004, but the pilot was never picked up.

Disney launched Duff's career in 2001 with the series Lizzie McGuire, and she's released pop albums that were a huge hit with the kids.

Do you think Hilary Duff is ready to tangle with television?
