“Go, go, go go!”
Kelly Rowland‘s upward acceleration shows no signs of slowing.
For, it has been confirmed that the ‘Ice’ singer will indeed be shooting a much speculated BET sitcom this Summer.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 31 year old is to star in a comedy pilot. Peep more details below:
The Bernie Mac Show’s Warren Hutcherson will executive produce What Would Dylan Do (working title), which will be written and co-executive produced by Julian Breece (BET’s Buppies).
Rowland, whose acting credits include episodes of American Dreams, The Hughleys and Girlfriends, will star as Dylan, a struggling L.A.-based relationship blogger who lives with her best friend Cherise (Gabrielle Dennis, The Game) and wealthy and divorced roommate Brooke (Melanie Liburd, Strike Back).
Brandon Scott, who played intern Dr. Ryan Spalding on Grey’s Anatomy, will play Dylan’s neighbor and Cherise’s boyfriend Ryan.
If ordered to series, Dylan would join a BET programming roster that includes Reed Between the Lines, The Game and Let’s Stay Together, as well as upcoming entries Second Generation Wayans and The Real Husbands of Hollywood.
Here’s hoping the show is picked up for a full run, for beyond being a great look for Ms. Kelly, it also seems like a fresh concept.
