Barely a month after Meghan Trainor birthed her first child (as we reported here), newly surfaced reports suggest the 27-year-old is set to birth the next chapter of her career thanks to a HUGE deal with NBCUniversal Television and Streaming Entertainment.
Trainor’s no stranger to penning award-winning music over her short, but storied career, but now the Pop diva’s extended that pen to television thanks to an exclusive deal with NBCUniversal.
Though its reported she’ll have the potential to contribute to a number of shows across the entire NBCUniversal portfolio, including programming on NBC, SYFY, Universal Kids, Bravo, E!, Oxygen, USA, Peacock, and more, what’s for sure is the GRAMMY winner will be developing unscripted and scripted projects – including a new sitcom on which she is set to write and star.
Execs at NBC are ecstatic to have Meghan’s megawatt talent on board.
“In addition to being a phenomenally talented performer, Meghan is a vibrant and hilarious ray of light who is the perfect fit for NBC’s brand,” said Susan Rovner, NBCUniversal Television & Streaming. “We love the idea of introducing Meghan into the world of scripted comedy as well working with her to find all the creative and crazy ways she can engage with fans across our brands. With eight distinct platforms, we’re able to provide the ultimate playground for multi-hyphenate artists, and this is just one of the ways we’re leveraging our new structure to benefit both talent and audiences.”
Trainor shares Rovner’s enthusiasm.
“This collaboration with NBCUniversal is so beyond a dream come true,” Trainor said. “I’m obsessed with and inspired by Susan and can’t wait to work with her and her incredibly talented team to bring our ideas to life.”
As of time reported, there are no tentative release dates for Meghan’s forthcoming NBC projects.
