“Quality of Life” will be co-produced and co-written by Jamie Lee Curtis, with the help of Janis Hirsch (“Will and Grace”) for CBS Television Studios. The series will see the American actress return to the small screen after recent appearances in “NCIS”, “New Girl” and “Scream Queens”.

The news comes a few days after the announcement of the star’s return to the “Halloween” franchise, the movie that launched her career 14 years ago. Jamie Lee Curtis will step back into role as Laurie Strode in the upcoming movie, due in theaters in October 2018. Directed by David Gordon Green, the film is billed as continuing on from the first two episodes, released in 1978 and 1982. JB
