Valerie Bertinelli

Valerie Bertinelli has been cast opposite Demi Lovato in the new NBC pilot Hungry.


Bertinelli, cast as Lovato's mom, is the latest addition to the pilot, which Lovato is executive producing.

According to Variety, Bertinelli's character Lisa is "a warm, loving, self-critical and emotional mess of a woman who has lost and gained the same 30 pounds in the span of 30 years."

In April, Deadline reported that Hungry "follows a group of friends who belong to a food issues group help each other as they look for love, success and the perfect thing in the fridge that's going to make it all better."

Shortly after the pilot's announcement, Lovato found herself embroiled in controversy when she took to Instagram to slam The Bigg Chill, a Los Angeles frozen yogurt shop, for perpetuating toxic diet culture for offering sugar-free options to customers.

Following backlash, the singer apologized

The casting of Bertinelli is apt given that, like Lovato, she has also been candid about her issues with food and struggles with body image.

If picked up, Hungry is set to air some time in 2022.
