Padma Lakshmi, the hot foodie we’ve come to love on “Top Chef,” is making the leap into a sitcom. Peacock and Universal Media Studios are creating a half-hour show, tentatively titled “Single Serving,” specifically for Lakshmi. It’ll follow her in the culinary world, and sounds a little bit like Courtney Cox’s character on Friends, maybe? Although she’s best known for playing host for the chef competition on Bravo, Lakshmi has dabbled in acting before. She’s had a role in “The Ten Commandments,” an ABC miniseries, as well as appearances in the full-length features “The Mistress of Spices,” “Boom” and “Glitter.” Oh, and who can forget her amazing performance in a Carl’s Jr ad?

What do you think? Are glad Padma is branching out, or do you think she should get back in the kitchen?
