Could Katy Perry be getting her own TV show?
The National Enquirer reports that after the singer “snagged critical raves for hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ — and her hilarious turn as a wacko prison guard on ‘Raising Hope,’” FOX network honchos are “begging her to star in her own series.”
According to the tabloid, Fox is in “hush-hush talks” with Perry about the new show, which would be “programmed opposite NBC’s iconic skit-com, ‘Saturday Night Live!’”
The network, says the Enquirer, believes the pop star “can siphon off SNL’s desirable younger demographic” with the series. The hypothetical program is described as “a modernized ’70s-type variety show” and would have Perry “act in offbeat comedy skits, as well as sing and dance!”
However, the “hush-hush talks” about Perry’s show are apparently so secretive, not even FOX knows about them.
A rep for the network tells Gossip Cop the story is “untrue.”
