Lovato, who has been open about having an eating disorder, is also an executive producer, alongside Martin, Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner of Hazy Mills and Scooter Braun, James Shin and Scott Manson of SB Projects.
Should it go to series, Hungry would be the first regular TV role for Lovato since she starred in Disney Channel’s Sonny With a Chance from 2009-11. She recurred on Will & Grace‘s final season last year and has done voice work on animated features Smurfs: The Lost Village and Charming. Lovato will also be the subject of a YouTube docuseries that’s set to open the 2021 SXSW festival and took part in the Celebrating America TV special at President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Hungry joins a comedy development roster at NBC that also includes three holdovers from the 2020 cycle: romantic comedies Crazy for You and Someone Out There and Jefferies, starring comedian Jim Jefferies.
