Brandy & Kelly Rowland Land New BET Shows
In some welcoming television news, R&B stars Brandy Norwood and Kelly Rowland have both landed two new shows to air on BET.
Kelly Rowland will lead ‘Chasing Destiny‘ which will be a a multi platform search for the next music superstar! The ‘Motivation‘ singer will act as a mentor (think Tyra Banks in ANTM maybe?) to young women hoping to make their mark in the tough music industry.
Aside from her multi-platinum recording career, Kelly has previously been a judge on ‘The X Factor‘ in both the UK and the USA and a dance coach on the short-lived Australian TV competition ‘Everybody Dance Now‘. So she definitely has the credentials and experience to work and inspire the young rising talent to be seen on TV.
Elsewhere Brandy Norwood will continue her relationship with BET and will star in a new romantic-comedy series ‘Zoe Moon‘. The scripted series will see her play a newly-divorced single mother who balances both her personal life and her fledgling career as a cosmetic mogul.
Since 2012 Brandy has played Chardonnay Pitts on the long running comedy-drama ‘The Game‘. The show which was picked up by BET from it’s fourth season has already won Brandy an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.
Most famously Brandy is best known for playing the lead character in the hit TV series ‘Moesha‘ between 1996 and 2001.
It’s great to see both these ladies expand them horizons when it comes to their position in the entertainment industry. While they’ll always been known for their hit singles and live vocals, branching into TV seems like a no brainer when wanting to maintain relevancy and acclaim in todays media.
It’s also promising to see BET creating more original content, especially after the success they’ve had with veteran performers such as Kevin Hart (Real Husbands of Hollywood) and Gabrielle Union (Being Mary Jane) in recent years.
Best of luck to all people involved!
