NEW YORK (AP) - Candice Bergen will pen a second memoir as a follow-up to her 1984 book “Knock Wood.”

Simon & Schuster Executive Vice President and Publisher Jonathan Karp said Thursday that Bergen’s new memoir will be published in 2012. The currently untitled book will cover Bergen’s time on the acclaimed TV show “Murphy Brown,” as well as the death of her husband, director Louis Malle.

Bergen, who won five Emmys for her performance on “Murphy Brown,” recently starred in the drama “Boston Legal,” which finished its four-year run in 2008. She’s also had roles in the recent films “The Romantics,” “Sex and the City” and “The Women.”
