New York - Jane Fonda has something she'd like to work out: A television series.

The veteran actress says cable television has the "best, edgiest writing" and that she would "love" to do a TV series soon.

While the Oscar-winner hasn't officially signed up for a TV show, she can be seen in new workout DVDs designed specifically for older people.

The 72-year-old says older people are ignored by the fitness industry and she wants to see a change.

She recently released Jane Fonda: Prime Time Walkout and Jane Fonda: Prime Time Fit & Strong. She says too many older people dismiss working out and that "it's the worst thing that a person could do."

Fonda is also writing a book about ageing. It is due out in 2011.
