US musician Lizzo launches reality TV search for 'beautifully talented big grrrls'
Amazon said on Friday (Mar 19) that the show will follow the 32-year-old, as she searches for dynamic, full-figured dancers and models to perform with her on stage, and on the runway.
US musician Lizzo is making a reality TV series to find big women to join her on stage.
"It's time to find my dream team of beautifully talented big grrrls," the Good As Hell singer, a three time Grammy winner and role model for body positivity, wrote on her Instagram page on Friday (Mar 19).
The reality series for Amazon Studios is the first in a deal between Lizzo and the streaming platform that was announced last year, under which she will develop and produce TV series.
Amazon said on Friday that the show will follow Lizzo, 32, as she searches for dynamic, full-figured dancers and models to perform with her on stage, and on the runway.
"Have you felt underrepresented and under appreciated? THEN I'M LOOKIN FOR YOU!," Lizzo wrote on Instagram.
Lizzo, who trained as a classical flute player, had a break-out year in 2019 with hits like Truth Hurts and Juice and a role in the movie Hustlers. The rapper and R&B singer was named best new artist at last year's Grammy Awards and Time magazine's 2019 entertainer of the year.
A release date and title for the reality show have yet to be announced.
