Plastic surgery could be coming to primetime yet again, and no, it’s not the melodrama of Nip/Tuck or the real-life overhauls of Extreme Makeover. This time, it’s a laughing matter.

CBS is filming a pilot for a comedy called Fugly, starring Marissa Jaret Winokur, who won a Tony for her performance in Hairspray. In it, identical twin sisters and their brother pay for one of the twins to have a surgical transformation. They then move to Hollywood in hopes of profiting from her newfound physical beauty. Winokur, who has played numerous parts that revolve around being overweight, will play the twin who doesn’t get surgery.
