American Idol: Katharine McPhee’s NBC TV Pilot

March 03, 2010 12:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


American Idol alum Katharine McPhee is returning to television, only this time she won’t be competing, she’ll be acting! The singer recently landed a job on a new NBC pilot called “The Pink House.” Keep reading for more details on her small screen starring role…

Katharine McPhee, runner-up on season 5 of American Idol, is shifting her sights to acting. The singer, who has appeared in small roles in the film The House Bunny and TV drama CSI: NY, will be starring in a new NBC comedy titled “The Pink House.” The show centers on two Midwesterners, John “Fitz” Fitzgerald and Rob “Bernie” Burnett, who relocate to Los Angeles to live on the beach and try to land their dream jobs. The American Idol star will play Emily, a Midwestern gal struggling to fit in with the LA scene who befriends the guys.

The show’s concept was pitched to NBC by Conaco, the production company owned by late-night funny man, Conan O’Brien. While the male leads have yet to be cast, it’s been confirmed that Katharine McPhee has signed on. The American Idol runner-up will get to display her comedy acting chops this week on an new episode of NBC‘s Community where she’ll play stepdaughter to Chevy Chase and potential love interest to Joel McHale.

In January, McPhee said, ”Acting is still a huge focus for me. I still meet with my acting coach, regardless of whether I have auditions. I just want to keep growing so that when a part comes along that I’m meant to play, I’ll be prepared. It’s just a matter of time until I find the right project.” Could The Pink House be the right project for the former American Idol star? Only time will tell.

    This gal keeps trying anything to get her out there. She was unintentionally hilarious on Ellen as a blond-haired country singer. She talked with this goofy southern accent that she has never used on any other show or in interviews. I guess the whole appearance was a send-up. I hope so.
