Amandla Stenberg is headed to television to star in an untitled upcoming NBC comedy!
According to THR, the 14-year-old Hunger Games actress will play a spunky eighth grader named Irene who is desperate to learn to sing despite her awful voice. Meanwhile, her new middle school music teacher (Craig Robinson) is reluctant to teach her.
“Big news! So excited!” she tweeted.
The show is being produced by Owen Ellickson and Greg Daniels, who both worked with Craig on The Office.
