Ariel Winter Replaces Demi Lovato For NBC’s “Hungry” Sitcom

The former child star is making her debut as an adult!

Ariel Winter has landed her first official debut role as an adult actress with NBC’s “Hungry”, a sitcom that initially starred Demi Lovato as the leading role. The former “Modern Family” star stepped in after Demi had to drop her role due to schedule conflicts.

The 24-year-old will star alongside Valerie Bertinelli, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, Ryan McPartlin, Anna Akana, and Ashley D. Kelley.

“Hungry” is a sitcom that follows a group of friends united by a group that focuses on people with food issues. The comedy series will follow them as they navigate through life and help each other find love, success, and the perfect thing in the fridge.

The series will be penned by “Hot in Cleveland” Suzanne Martin and directed by the legendary “Friends” TV director, James Burrows.

Demi, who had struggles with body image, was the ideal star for the role. The 29-year-old had been open in fighting anorexia and bulimia in recent years. But their replacement is no less suitable as Ariel also had her own share of body image issues throughout her career.

Demi will remain as the executive producer of the show alongside their manager, Scooter Braun.
