Teen actress and singer Hilary Duff has turned down plans for a new sitcom on American TV network CBS.

Producers NINA WASS and GENE STEIN had been developing a script for the blonde beauty, but Duff rejected it.

A CBS spokesperson says, "We were excited to develop it with her. This project didn't work out, but we certainly hope to be in business with her in the future."

DUFF, who scored a massive hit with her LIZZIE McGUIRE TV series and movie, was at the centre of a fierce bidding war between networks last year (03), after she parted company with the DISNEY CHANNEL.
