A new comedy project starring the actor and performer is in development for NBC.

Demi Lovato is to star and executive produce a brand new sitcom, all about food issues. Entitled 'Hungry', the TV series will centre on a group of people who have different food-related problems.

Writer Suzanne Martin, known for 'Frasier' and 'Will & Grace' will lead the project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the characters in 'Hungry' will "help each other as they look for love, success and that one thing in the refrigerator that will make it all better".

In the past, the star been vocal with the press about her eating disorder and self-harm problems. The performer has also battled with substance abuse, which led to her releasing the track 'Sober' in 2018, before she suffered an overdose. She has been clean since the incident.

The filming for the pilot of 'Hungry' is currently in the pipeline, with the sitcom hoping to be picked up for its first series run.
