Demi Lovato will star in their own Roku Original show, The Demi Lovato Show, premiering on July 30.
Lovato will bring an array of all-star guests and experts for frank discussions about activism, feminism, gender identity, sex and body positivity, mental health, and interplanetary visitors during the 10-minute episodes. Lovato hosts similarly deep conversations with guest stars and experts, such as Drew Barrymore and Jane Fonda, on their 4D with Demi Lovato podcast, which launched in May.
The Demi Lovato Show is the first of over a dozen Roku Originals programs to premiere on The Roku Channel.
“Some conversations can be difficult, but I’ve never been one to shy away from speaking candidly about things,” Lovato said in a statement. “We wanted to create a space that normalizes living your own truth — where people can speak, engage and more importantly, learn, together. There’s something therapeutic about having raw discussions that people can relate to, and with ‘The Demi Lovato Show,’ no topics are off limits and opinions are welcome. I’m so excited for people to see how these conversations unfold on The Roku Channel.”
The pop superstar and their manager Scooter Braun, who are executive producing The Demi Lovato Show, have the same credits on Lovato’s new UFO investigation limited series on Peacock titled Unidentified With Demi Lovato. Lovato’s Hungry comedy series about a group of people with eating disorders got a pilot order at NBC earlier this year, which they are also set to star in and executive produce. The Grammy-nominated singer’s YouTube Originals docuseries Demi Lovato: Dancing With the Devil, which opened this year’s SXSW festival in March, received a nomination for best music documentary at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards.
“Demi Lovato is a voice of a generation and we’re beyond excited to elevate their voice with new audiences,” added Brian Tannenbaum, Roku’s head of original alternative programming. “With such a singular talent at the forefront of ‘The Demi Lovato Show,’ there’s never been a better time to have honest, frank discussions in a fun, approachable and unfiltered format. We’re thrilled to be able to share these conversations with the millions of engaged streamers on The Roku Channel.”
Hannah Lux Davis directed The Demi Lovato Show, which was produced by GoodStory Entertainment and SB Projects. Lovato, Braun, JD Roth, Adam Greener, Alison Kaye, Scott Manson, Todd Yasui, and Sara Hansemann are credited as executive producers.
