Confirmed: Kelly Rowland Lands BET Sitcom Pilot

kellyrowland 123 Confirmed: Kelly Rowland Lands BET Sitcom Pilot

“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.

Details below…

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.

    Summer’s come to an end…I don’t know what more to say about Miss Rowland. I doubt she’ll ever become the truly great artist she could be. Whoever is driving the car called “Kelly’s Career” needs to be ejected so she can pull over and check where she is on this map called success. I wish her the best…and some GOOD music!

    take your THOUGHTS about KELLY and stick them

    talk about GREATNESS in KELLY she song in one of
    the biggest girls groups in the world and that along
    have given her the fuel she need to take her all the
    way. Kelly is already To Blessed To Be Stressed. You
    keep hiding behind your screen name and good english
    and keep trying to Read Kelly’s palm because it’s not over
    till the Almighty says it’s over for ANYONE.
    PS
    Kelly keep right on doing the dang thing, what’s for you
    KELLY is for you and the devil in hell can’t take it away
    from you. I can’t stan haters who always shows just how small their pea head brains are that’s located in the crack of all of the haters loose Booty’s, Go Kelly keep yo Focus no matter what.Perhaps i can get a Cameo on yo Show, talking about the lives of haters! and the slanderous lies they Always telling.

    Dear Laxative!

    Thank you for commenting upon how good my English is; I speak it as a first language. I make no attempt at slandering Kelly, I am only mentioning the facts which are poor promotion, a disorganised album campaign for the third time in a row now and distracting ventures which are keeping her out of the limelight (the American music scene) she needs to succeed.

    As for my screen name it is my REAL name. I am not, unlike you, hiding behind the title of a busy international airport. As the person below has noted, Kelly’s best music was what she did on Simply Deep (sales verify this) and I’ve always preferred her voice over ANY Destiny’s Child member.

    Thank you,

    I’d rather hear her sing ‘SIMPLY DEEP’ -style. She’s got a good voice and a fine personality. She’s also a very well dancer!

    But if that is what she wants, she shall go for it. JUST PLEASE no more techno music. THX!!!!

    Wow, Kelly Row.

    I’m really happy to see Solange now Kelly making moves on their own without eing compared to Bey.

    I would have never thought that Kelly would become some sort of jack-of-all-trades like Jennifer Lopez is.

    She may not be the greatest in any particular field but she can do whatever she wants when the time is right.

    Bossip said she should be chosen to play WHITNEY and I agree. My first choice was Leona Lewis but she’s sleeping big time. Maybe there’s an Oscar in your future, Kelly.

    Good for her. But what’s the status of ‘Ice’. I don’t see it on any radio chart, there’s no video shoot, no promotion. The song was released 2 months ago! I hope her team gets it together…

    “Ice”‘s new title is “Puddle of Water” feat. Lil’ Rain. It’s gonna premier in December on her new album “Defrosted and Refrozen”.

    M happy for her but what does this mean for her being able to release and promote music?

    …or did I answer my own question?

    Hmmm. I wish Kelly the best but I do think she lacks the dedication and connection to her fans. If she’d really promote and push her music I could see her getting a lot of fans that would carry over into watching a show by her. But with this it seems like she does something for a while, then just drops it and moves on.

    Not for nothing but when she released Mmotivation I thought her intention was to really make a presence for the world with her music. It seemed like she had her sound, she was confident, sh was at a good age and Motivation got people taking her seriously…then she did X factor for Cowell and now that ended uP going nowhere and her album didn’t get the attention it deserved.

    Now we’ve got new music and the same problem starting all over.

    Moesha didn’t keep Brandy from success. You can’t compare this to her being on the UK like before.

    Kelly is a resilient black female success, against the odds and WITHOUT MATTHEW, she keeps gigs going and making money

    And what….????

    Moesha didn’t keep Brandy from album and single success. You can’t compare this to her being on the UK like before. this will be shot in LA where she is able to work and promote.

    You nobody’s keep calling her out for flaws, but I don’t see ANYBODY booking gigs as consistently. She was saught out for X-Factor and there are plenty of females who wish they could shoot a LEADING LADY pilot- including LaLa, Brandy….. So I respect her on her blessings. As y’all criticize and examine her career- you all stay broke

    And what….????

    Okay Kels I c u. Do ya thang. The only thing about Kels is she went pop techno when rnb wasn’t working n people say do what works but if brandy Monica mjb Melanie hell even bey went techno pop people WOULD LOSE THEIR MINDS!! Call them names sellouts start saying they can’t sing etc. I’m like Kelly you can SING use it. I remember this one dude telling all these people who could sing to use n he didn’t tell Kels . Which bugged cause if u gonna tell bey ( 2008) tell Kelly at least she had single ladies n like smash into you n halo. I want Kelly to do that if anything a little pop more rnb please. I’ll watch first episode n SECONd but if I don’t like n I feel nice I’ll just turn to it n mute n do something else or go watch something in a diffrent room while she gets her ratings. Kelly please do rnb u will regonized 4 trying to bring it back it’s slowly getting popular again. Idk. Kelly use it. N ice wasn’t my cup of tea Kelly falsetto is way better than that I heard it in destinys child b4 n i don’t think ice was her singing in falsetto compared to what she did in dc but Kelly SANG!! ( no pop ) p.s she said her albUm would have real rnb well c but ice ain’t giving it 2 me n LMAO off at puddle of water n defrosted n refrozen.

    People are all the time comparing Beyonce and Kelly. However this is one endeavor you’ll never be able to compare the two. We all know Beyonce can’t act worth s***, but Kelly can.

    With that being said, GO KELLY!!! Proud of you woman!!! I hope the series gets picked up.

    I’m really excited about her new show! I don’t know if ppl realize this but on the internet the song was released 2 months ago but on radio it is considered a brand new song. I hope she releases 2 singles and 2 videos b4 her album even comes out! That would be smart this time around. Thats y I am hoping she releases the video to Ice very soon.

    That would be a good look for her and her brand! I see her being the Donna Summers of this generation. Maybe she can play her in a biopic; I can’t see her doing Whitney notes.

    Go Kelly! Love you, but put your music together mate. Be a little quicker releasing your music and videos. No cheap videos though! Keep it between us vedio was quite cool, but you didn’t promote it! Still love you though, but put a little more energy in your projects girl!

Cause she always releases diffrent singles 4 diffrent countries n people agree when I say this Kelly should be loved because she loves the music she does.. Wait is that how I wanna say that? People on diffrent post say kelly shouldn’t have to 2 release a pop single then rnb. She should be known 4 whatever. I mean okay she shouldn’t try to Pleaseveveryone that way maybe do an album with pop n rnb LIKE bey not comparing at all. A song like wlto
