We’re definitely looking forward to Hungry, the Demi Lovato led television show that 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.”
The pilot has added another person to the cast. Valerie Bertinelli is set to lead the cast alongside Demi in the upcoming show. Just last week, Anna Akana, Alex Brightman, Ashley D. Kelley, Jay Klaitz and Rory O’Malley were all announced as additions to the cast.
Bertinelli will play Teddy’s (Lovato) Mom Lisa. She’s her daughters best friend, and is warm and loving. She’s also a hot emotional mess, who has spent the last 30 years of her life gaining and loosing the same 30 pounds. She’s a restaurant owner which means that she’s constantly thinking about food.
She’s had her Food Network show for quite sometime, Valeries Home Cooking, but we are excited to see her return to the sitcom world.
