Kelly Rowland Stars in Comedy Pilot for BET

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland has been bitten by the acting bug. The “Motivation” singer has been tapped to star in a pilot for BET.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Destiny’s Child diva will play Dylan, a struggling L.A.-based relationship blogger who lives with her best friend Cherise (Gabrielle Dennis, “The Game”) and roommate Brooke (Melanie Liburd, “Strike Back”), in the tentatively-titled series “What Would Dylan Do.”

Warren Hutcherson (“The Bernie Mac Show”) will executive produce the show, which will be written and co-executive produced by Julian Breece (BET’s “Buppies”).

Kelly is no stranger to television. She previously served as a judge on the U.K. version of “The X Factor” and can currently be seen on the Australian dance competition “Everybody Dance Now.”

She has also appeared on episodes of “American Dreams,” “The Hughleys,” “Girlfriends,” and “Single Ladies.”

In addition to acting, Kelly is recording her fourth solo album, due by the end of the year. The first single, “Ice” featuring Lil Wayne, was released last month.

    And that’s about ALL it will be is a pilot!! This bum is not TV material, she’s lucky she was in the background of Destiny’s Child. The girl has a horse face and horse teeth and should be BEHIND The Scenes!! She has “so many fans” who STAN for her, yet this girl cant’s sell past 100,000 albums in the US? Lol. Delusional stans.

    Thats an amazing picture of Kelly, but her time is over. I think she should go do stage plays with Michelle.

    Will probably flop like most of bet shit. That or BET shitty producers will probably kill it like they did the game.

    Uh huh. The Game became terrible once the CW dropped it; few people got behind Warner & Ross’ Reed Behind The Lines (which is a shame, because these are GOOD actors!!) so I’m not expecting too much for this.

    I bet kelly was right when she said hater never take vacation huh? Always checkin your every move. Damn don’t you have your own lives? Focus on getting your life better: eat healthy nt just anythin to keep u goin. Have a big CLEAN house nt a cottage yr hoerish mama stole from her boss’ dog. Kelly is making money while you spend your social welfare peanuts hating on her. GET A LIFE HOE!

    I love Kelly and she does pretty well at acting, but BET just has a terrible track record with their original series, I hope and pray that this is a good one, hopefully Mara Brock Akil & Kelsey Grammer is behind this which isn’t likely

    @Redchainsaw, Really, is that why BET’s television shows get decent cable ratings? All of BET’s shows are actually very successful. BET is the only network that is creating television shows to reach the African American audience.

    Props to Kelly, but this can only be bad news for her music career. I’ve said time and time again that Kelly has the potential to be a HUGE music star but the problem that she’s facing right now is she’s trying to juggle too much at one time. She’s putting her focus into too many different things. She’s working on this BET sitcom, an Australian dance show, and yet her single “Ice” is nowhere to be found on the charts and it hasn’t been promoted. I’m hoping her record label team get it together ASAP!

    @RealZ, her song is on the charts with no promo. Thank you.

    I’m happy for Kelly. She’s out here grinding and working making money while niggas posting comments from their public access computer

    @RealZ, im a huge fan of hers and sadly i have to agree with you. #ICE is suffering while everything else is looking good. I am happy for her but until its confirm that the show will be picked up by BET she should put some fire behind her music and promote #ICE
    Love Kelly forever man #TeamKelly We All We Got

    Wow why are people hating on Kelly? It is smart for Kelly to take acting opportunities and expand her brand. Since music industry is a tough business why shouldn’t Kelly get into acting? It is a smart move.
