Kelly Rowland and Brandy land new US TV shows

Rowland will mentor young singers in a search for the next all-female superstar group

Kelly Rowland and Brandy will both appear in new TV shows on the cable and satellite TV channel BET (Black Entertainment Television).

The channel recently revealed details of its new schedule. As reported by The LA Times, former Destiny’s Child member and solo artist Kelly Rowland will feature in a new talent show called ‘Chasing Destiny.’

The show has been described as “a search for the next big female superstar group to make their mark in a dog-eat-dog music industry. In the series, these singing hopefuls will vie their way to stardom with recording mogul Rowland helping them to find their voice as entertainers.”

R&B singer Brandy will star in a new sitcom titled ‘Zoe Moon’ where she will play a “live-out-loud newly single mom embarking on a new life and career as a fledgling cosmetics mogul.”

The channel also announced it is reviving MTV’s classic hidden camera show Punk’d.

Punk’d, in which Ashton Kutcher played a series of ambitious pranks on his fellow celebrities, originally ran on MTV from 2003 to 2007. It was briefly revived in 2012 for a new season featuring a different special guest host each week. Kutcher, who co-created the show with Jason Goldberg, remained on board as an executive producer.

Goldberg will return as an executive producer on the new version Punk’d, but BET made no mention of Kutcher in its programming slate.

Elsewhere, Kelly Rowland recently joined Beyonce as a bridesmaid at her mother Tina Knowles’ remarriage.

All three former Destiny’s Child members attended Tina Knowles’ wedding, with Rowland revealing a photograph on her instagram of herself and Beyonce among the key female attendees at the ceremony.
