After strictly focusing on her music and herself for many years, Demi Lovato is making a comeback on TV, starring in a brand new NBC comedy. The upcoming series, called Hungry, follows a group of friends who are a part of a food issues group.

Together, they're on a journey to "help each other as they look for love, success, and the perfect thing in the fridge that's going to make it all better," according to the network. In addition to starring in the show, Lovato will also be the executive producer, alongside Suzanne Martin, writer of Frasier and Will & Grace.

Martin will be joined by Will & Grace star Sean Hayes, another executive producer, plus Demi's manager, Scooter Braun, and a few others. NBC is giving Hungry a put pilot commitment, meaning that even if it doesn't air as an ongoing series, it will still hit the screen as a special.

This isn't Lovato's first time working with Martin, as she had a recurring role on Will & Grace in 2020. While it's been about a decade since the Disney Channel series she once starred in, Sonny With a Chance was canceled, Lovato's ready to get back to acting. She also made a few appearances on Glee, From Dusk Till Dawn, and other popular shows over the years.

Recently, Lovato has been working on her new docuseries, Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil. According to a press release, the series will provide "an honest look back at some of the most trying times in Lovato's life as she unearths her prior traumas and discovers the importance of her physical, emotional, and mental health."

Dancing with the Devil comes a few years after Lovato's previous biographical film on YouTube, Simply Complicated. Clearly, Demi's got a lot in store for us in the future, and we can't wait to see her take on her newest project, Hungry.
