The untitled project, which will be executive produced by Lizzo, has been launched as a part of the singer’s first-look deal with the studio, which was announced in 2020, under which she will develop and produce TV series for the platform.
“Are you a full-figured dancer or model? Have you felt underrepresented and under appreciated? THEN I’M LOOKIN FOR YOU! It’s time to find my dream team of beautifully talented big grrrls,” she wrote on Instagram.
“Only the most talented dancers and models will have what it takes to twerk it out on tour and stomp it out on the runway,” the casting call stated.
The release date of the series is yet to be announced by Amazon Studios.
Earlier, talking about the first look deal in a press release, Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, had said, “Lizzo is one of the most exciting, creative, joyful artists in the industry, and it is such a pleasure to announce this new deal with her. She has such a unique perspective and we’re so excited to hear her ideas for new content that our Prime Video customers are sure to love.”
Lizzo made her breakthrough in music in 2019 with chartbusters like Truth Hurts and Juice. The rapper was named best new artist at the Grammy Awards the same year. Apart from music, she has also acted in a role in the movie Hustlers.
