One of pilot season's strangest projects has found its leading lady.

Christina Ricci will star in the NBC comedy pilot Girlfriend in a Coma, about a woman who wakes from a years-long coma to discover she has a 17-year-old daughter from a pregnancy she never knew about. The single-camera project is based on a Douglas Coupland novel and is being produced by Dick Wolf (Law & Order), Peter Jankowski (Law & Order), and Danielle Gelber (Chicago Fire).

If you're looking at Christina Ricci and wondering, 'How does that coma math work?', you're right. Ricci is 32, which means her character would have gotten pregnant and fallen into the coma at the age of 15. Did we mention this is a super strange project?

What do you think about Ricci jumping onto another TV show after Pan Am crashed and burned last season? And more importantly, how is a show about a coma victim reuniting with her long-lost daughter possible going to be funny? Sound off in the comments below!
