Veteran actress Jane Fonda has signed up for her first lead Tv role in a new comedy about a dysfunctional mother and daughter.

Fresh from her successful recurring role as a media company Ceo in The Newsroom, the two-time Oscar winner is set to play the lead in upcoming ABC series, Now What?

Fonda will play a mum whose daughter slams her in an online blog, prompting the pair to move in together in a bid to sort out their differences.

The Barbarella star will also executive produce the comedy.
