Valerie Bertinelli Will Star in 'Hungry' Comedy With Demi Lovato

Valerie Bertinelli is joining the cast of Hungry.

The upcoming NBC single-camera comedy will star Demi Lovato, and is Valerie‘s first series regular role since Hot in Cleveland, Deadline reported Friday (June 11).

The show is written and executive produced by Suzanne Martin, and follows “a group of friends who belong to a food-issues group helping one another as they look for love, success and the perfect thing in the fridge that’s going to make it all better.”

In the show, Demi is Teddy, a “talented food stylist who wants to have a healthy relationship with food and date men who are good for her – but, like so many of us – it’s a struggle.”

Valerie will play Lisa, Teddy’s (Lovato) mom “and quick to point out they are also best friends. She is a warm, loving, self-critical and emotional mess of a woman who has lost and gained the same 30 pounds for 30 years. A restaurant owner, she is constantly thinking about and serving people food.”

Anna Akana, Alex Brightman, Ashley D. Kelley, Jay Klaitz and Rory O’Malley are all set to star.

Demi Lovato recently shared a powerful message about weight.
