Demi Lovato will now be seen on-screen in a comedy series based on food issues, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will focus on a group of friends who belong to a food issues group as they help each other navigate their struggles.
Hungry is also slated as a put pilot, which means that the network will definitely air it, either as a special or series, and it will likely be picked up to series.
Hungry, which has been given a pilot order at USA network NBC, will be the first regular TV role for Lovato since she starred in Disney Channel's Sonny with a Chance from 2009 to 2011.
A new comedy project starring the actor and performer is in development for NBC.. Her first onscreen role was playing Angela in Barney & Friends in the early 2000s.
The actress-singer slowly started returning to acting a few years ago, voicing Smurfette in 2017's Smurfs: The Lost Village.
In 2020, Lovato had a recurring role on Will & Grace and appeared in the Will Ferrell-led Netflix comedy movie Eurovision.
She also earned rave reviews for her performance of The Star-Spangled Banner at Super Bowl LIV previous year, and she also recently performed at the primetime special for President Joe Biden's inauguration last week.
