Meghan Trainor just inked a major deal!
The 27-year-old “All About That Bass” singer has signed an overall deal with NBCUniversal Television and Streaming Entertainment, including a comedy series now in development, Variety reported Friday (March 19).
She will star in and help develop the sitcom for NBC, but there are no plot details or writers attached to the project just yet.
It’s the first project under the cross-platform deal, which is described as the first of its kind under the new NBCU Television and Streaming Entertainment structure under NBCUniversal chairman Susan Rovner.
Meghan‘s deal with NBCU will also include other potential projects across scripted and unscripted content for NBCU’s various outlets, including Bravo, E!, Oxygen, SYFY, Universal Kids, USA and Peacock.
“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. 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,” Susan said in a statement.
Meghan called the deal “so beyond a dream come true. 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.”
