R&B legend Gladys Knight, in between her grueling ‘Dancing With the Stars’ (DWTS) routines, is allegedly trying to learn her lines for a TV show that has yet to be announced.
Production insiders for a show called “The First Family” — about a president who tries to balance career and a personal family life — said that Knight is set to star in a matriarchal role. Knight, who is 67, will play the president’s mom on the series.
The show is being executive produced by comedian Byron Allen, who shot to fame as a TV show host for various programs that aired during the late seventies and eighties. Allen is now the head of Entertainment Studios, a broadcast syndication company responsible for producing and distributing several television shows pertaining to stand-up comedy and show business.
