Kelly Rowland To Star in New BET Comedy
Singer Kelly Rowland is looking to upgrade her television stints.
After sitting in the judge’s seat for U.K.’s ‘X Factor’ competition earlier this year, the former Destiny’s Child member is starring in a comedy pilot for BET, the Hollywood Reporter reports.
The show’s working title ‘What Would Dylan Do’ will feature Rowland as a struggling Los Angeles-based relationship blogger named Dylan, who lives with her best friend played by ‘The Game’s Gabrielle Dennis. Brandon Scott of ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and Melanie Liburd of ‘Strikes Back’ are also set to co-star.
The pilot will be co-executive-produced by ‘The Bernie Mac Show’s’ Warren Hutchinson and BET’s ‘Buppies’ Julian Breece. If picked up, this won’t be the first time Rowland has made it on the small screen, who has appeared on episodes of ‘American Dreams’, ‘The Hughleys’ and ‘Girlfriends,’
