Demi Lovato is set to star in a new single-camera comedy on NBC, Hungry. The series, written by Will & Grace alumna and Emmy Award-winner Suzanne Collins, will follow a group of friends, in a food-issues group. They are looking for love, friendship, success and the perfect recipe to fix all their problems. Lovato has not prioritized TV stardom in a long time, preferring to focus on her music career and do guest appearances on shows such as Will & Grace and From Dusk Till Dawn. This role will be Lovato’s first lead role in years, as well as her first stint as an executive producer. 

Lovato got her big break back in 2008 with the Disney Channel original film Camp Rock. She starred in many other Disney films and television shows, such as Sonny With a Chance and Glee, before her mental health had her backing away from the acting spotlight. Lovato has been open about her struggles with mental health and eating disorders. Last December, Lovato posted some photos from a celebratory photoshoot in which she outlined her stretch marks with gold glitter. “I used to genuinely believe recovery from an eating disorder wasn’t real” Lovato stated in the caption. “I’m so grateful that I can honestly say for the first time in my life – my dietitian looked at me and said, ‘This is what eating disorder recover looks like’.”

Lovato has written six studio albums to date, with her most recent release being the album Tell Me You Love Me back in 2017. She appeared as one of the main performers in the primetime special celebrating President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris‘ Inauguration on Jan. 20.
