Priyanka Chopra has signed a one-year talent development deal with ABC Television Studios!
The 32-year-old Bollywood star will be crossing over into the American market as ABC will either develop a starring vehicle for her or cast her in an existing project target for fall 2015.
“To a story teller each platform of performance offers its own artistic challenges, and if you have a good story to tell, regardless of the platform, audiences will follow,” Priyanka said in a statement. “I’ve been a long time fan of ABC shows, and an admirer of how the network has changed the landscape of TV through the diversity of their lead characters. As an intrinsic creative, I am drawn to opportunities that test me in new ways. I’m honored by the opportunity to share my talent with a game-changing network, and I’m very much looking forward to participate in this new endeavor.”
You may recognize Priyanka for her song “In My City,” which was recently featured as the NFL’s Thursday Night Football theme song. She also has starred in more than 45 films, was featured in the latest campaign for GUESS?, and won the title of Miss World at age 17.
Congratulations to Priyanka on the big news!
