Mills and Martin are currently under an overall deal with the studio and Hungry is the latest project they’ve collaborated on. The others include Hot in Cleveland, The Soul Man, and Crowded.

Lovato has released six studio albums with the most recent being Tell Me You Love Me in 2017. In addition to singing, she is an accomplished actress. Her breakout role was in the Disney Channel original film Camp Rock and its sequels. She was also in episodes of the Will & Grace revival and Grey’s Anatomy, From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series, and Glee.
