Ellen's at it again!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC has given a script order to an untitled single-camera sitcom executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres and written and produced by Lauren Pomerantz, who worked on "Ellen."

The series will center on an independent 32-year-old woman who, upon being listed as "single" while signing papers for a house, enters crisis mode and wonders if she's made the right decision in being on her own.

In addition to her hosting duties on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," DeGeneres may have another project on her plate: Playing Ann Romeny's roommate on "Modern Family."

When Romney -- who is openly against gay marriage -- said "Modern Family" was her favorite show, DeGeneres took to twitter to joke about her statement.

"I'll play her roommate," the openly gay actress tweeted in response to "Modern Family" co-creator Steven Levitan's tweet that Romney could be the officiate at Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitch's (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) wedding.
