Noted astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has come to terms with producers to star in a new television series on Fox. Co-starring with Tyson are Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon, former stars of the hit series Sex in the City, upon which the new series is based.

Titled "Cosmos," after the drink popularized by the long-running HBO series, the new show will bring back to network television the glamorous, fast-paced Manhattan lifestyle familiar to fans of the earlier series, explained producer Darren Star, "but with a new, fresh twist: the addition of the man the New York Post once called New York City's Most Eligible Bachelor."

Tyson, who first achieved fame as a pitchman for numerous science-themed television programs, has in recent years achieved the status of a crossover pop-culture icon. With over 1.6 million followers on Twitter, he has become a cult figure among self-styled "smart" people in the coveted 18-34 demographic.

The producers clearly hope that the addition of Tyson to the aging lineup will help revive the flagging Sex in the City brand, and broaden the show's appeal beyond its traditional base of sad, middle-aged spinsters.

The four long-time friends from the original series will all return, but with some new additions to the cast. Carrie Bradshaw and Miranda Hobbes will once again be played by Sarah Jessica Parker and Cynthia Nixon, while newcomers Lindsay Lohan and Selena Gomez will take over the parts previously played by Kim Cattrall and Kristin Davis.
