The precise terms of the deal are being held under lock and key at the moment, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Logo bought a pilot script conceived by the singer and Ron Zimmerman, a former lover who has written episodes for the TV shows 'Til Death, My Wife and Kids and 7th Heaven.
This Logo show, yet to be titled, takes place in 1960s Hollywood, a backdrop with which Cher of course has plenty of experience.
Logo's Senior VP of original programming, Brent Zacky, told THR after the project was announced at the Television Critics Association press tour that the network had looked at some of of Cher and Zimmerman's other ideas, but that this show seemed more viable.
"We read some of the stuff that Cher and Ron had written and it was really terrific," he said. "We came up with an idea set in Hollywood in the early '60s and we're very excited to see how we get through the process. The deal is brand-new and we're just getting started on the project."
Zacky couldn't say yet whether Cher will appear on screen, but did say the project is just one of many original programs its considering for the months ahead.
"We're very carefully and hopefully diligently taking a few shots in this arena and we'll see how it pans out," Zacky said. "We're certainly excited to be in business with an icon like Cher and Ron, who is a terrific writer."
Cher released her new single today via her Twitter account, four days before its official iTunes release date on November 26. An unfinished version of the track had leaked back in October.
Tweeted Cher: "Happy Thanksgiving! ... when I started singing it I thought about strong Famous Women….Then I Thought “fk That””THIS IS A WOMAN’S WORLD” We’re All Strong ! MEN 2 !"
The track was co-written by Paul Oakenfold, Anthony Crawford, and Matt Morris and is off her first studio album in 10 years.

Cher and Kathy Griffin have always been devout, unwavering LGBT allies. But their activism, as everyone's should, extends into other, related realms, like the Republican Party and their presidential nominee Mitt Romney's archaic efforts to overturn women's rights, including access to run-of-the-mill health care at placed like Planned Parenthood.
In a video included AFTER THE JUMP, the divas tell it like it is to remind voters that Romney and company aren't just against LGBT equality, but are against women, as well.
