The Hollywood Reporter says that Heche has signed on to the new comedy "True." According to the industry paper, "True" concerns "a young woman [Heche] whose boyfriend breaks up with her while she is in labor with their baby, and she has to move back in with her parents. While the man doesn't leave her life completely, the ordeal is a wake-up call for the new mother, who has been procrastinating her entire life, staying in school for as long as possible to delay stepping into the real world." "True" is being executive produced by its writer, Kari Lizer. The comedy marks Heche's latest project for the WB Network; she is currently playing a recurring role on "Everwood," the WB drama that airs Monday evenings.

Anne Heche made her Broadway debut in the Tony-winning play Proof. She starred opposite Alec Baldwin in the 2004 revival of Twentieth Century, earning a Tony nomination for her performance. She received an Emmy nomination for her work in the Lifetime movie "Gracie's Choice," and her other screen credits include "Six Days Seven Nights," "Wag the Dog" and "Donnie Brasco."
