Ashanti Signs Major TV Deal

Published: Sunday 22nd Nov 2009 by Sam

R&B star Ashanti has inked a major deal with Revielle LLC – the major TV production company behind ‘Ugly Betty’, ‘The Biggest Loser’, and ‘It’s On With Alexa Chung’ – it has been announced.

The partnership will see the former INC star serve as Executive Producer, overseer, as well as an on-air personality on a music-based competition TV show. Speaking of the deal,  Ashanti said:

“I’m excited about the opportunity to be working with Reveille LLC, one of the tv industry’s heavyweights and I can’t wait to begin production.” {Source} {Thanks Stefan}

Kudos where kudos are due, it’s great to see Ms. Douglas doing her thing outside of being an artist. Folk may get on her for sales, current ‘relevancy’ etc, yet anyone who really knows how this industry works understands that it’s all about diversifying into other areas to ensure you longevity (see: LL Cool J, Ice T, Diddy etc). More power to her!

    I like the fact that Ashanti always hustles. She always has a paycheck coming in. ALWAYS. Her last album was great and slept on. I feel she’s trying. Doing much better than the Myas and Ameries of the industry.

    Great! she is bout to get PAID!!!!!!!!!!!!!! way more than a damn album will ever get.. very smart gurl

    Yes, Ashanti does stay on her grind. I’m still waiting on the next album too! Sad that people slept on 2008’s ‘The Declaration’ album because it was a hottt album. You could seriously listen to it from start to end. If the label was behind her more so promo wise it would have been way more successful.

    But have no fear Ashanti just comes back even stronger with other big opportunities. Can’t wait to see Ashanti’s future blossom!

    Great news! She gets bashed so much when others less talented get a pass. Hopefully she’ll be back on top with better music. I listened to every one of her albums and didn’t like enough tracks to buy, but I wish her the best.

    Yes!!! Get it Shanti!!! I love her and she is such a sweetheart. She’s so down to earth and stays on her hustle!! Her album may be slept on but she does have plenty money whether people want to believe it or not. Every starlet don’t have to CALL the PAPS, be flashy and fake to be relevant. I’m so happy for her. Her and Mya are doing big things now.
