Goldie Hawn is set to star in HBO's "The Viagra Diaries," according to The Hollywood Reporter, which will mark her first acting role since 2002's "The Banger Sisters" with Susan Sarandon.

Hawn will play a woman whose husband has a midlife crisis at 65 and leaves her. Hawn's character will struggle with being single for the first time in 35 years.

The project is being written by "Sex and the City" creator and executive producer Darren Star. The industry paper notes that if the project is picked up as a series, it will be Hawn's first regular television role since 1970, when she starred on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In." The actress, 65, has made public appearances as herself in various entertainment programs including as a presenter at the 2009 Academy Awards, seen above.

"The Viagra Diaries" is based on a 2009 book by author Barbara Rose Brooker.

Hawn is set to become a grandmother once again when daughter and actress Kate Hudson gives birth later this year. Hudson, who is Hawn's daughter with ex-husband Bill Hudson, made Hawn a grandmother for the first time when she had her son Ryder Russell Robinson with ex-husband Chris Robinson of the rock band the Black Crowes in 2004. The two divorced in 2007 after almost seven years of marriage.

The 32-year-old actress is pregnant with her second child and became engaged to boyfriend Matthew Bellamy, the baby's father, in April.

Hawn became a grandmother a second and third time when son Oliver Hudson, another child she had with her ex-husband, and his wife welcomed sons in 2007 and 2010.
