Goldie Hawn has signed on to a new television series, an HBO comedy called The Viagra Diaries that is the latest project from Sex and the City creator Darren Star. The show will be based on Barbara Booker's 2009 book of the same name and will follow a woman who finds herself navigating the singles' scene again after 35 years of marriage. Hawn's character is left by her 65-year-old husband, who bails during a midlife crisis. The series, which is being written by Star, is a Sex and the City for the retirement crowd.

The series is being produced by HBO and hasn't been picked up yet for a full season. If it is, then the show will mark Hawn's first regular television gig in 40 years. The 65-year-old actress was last seen on screen in the 2002 movie, The Banger Sisters, in which she co-starred with Susan Sarandon. The return to television after such a long break would be a remarkable feat for an actress who has had such a long and notable career.

Though the show will portray Hawn as a woman whose life is falling apart, her real life couldn't be brighter. She is set to become a grandmother again when daughter Kate Hudson gives birth to a second child later this summer, and the relationship she has maintained with actor Kurt Russell since 1983 is still going strong.
