It looks like Victoria Justice’s next television appearance will be on Fox.
The 22-year-old half-Puerto Rican actress/singer has signed a talent deal with Fox and 20th Century Fox Television.
As part of the pact, the studio and network will develop joint projects featuring roles specifically tailored for the former Nickelodeon star.
They will also be able to have Justice guest star on existing Fox/20th television series.
The network and studio have young female ensemble horror comedy Scream Queens, and Justice’s background as a recording artist would also make her a good fit for music-fueled projects like Empire and Urban Cowboy.
Justice has toplined her own series both on the comedy and drama side with the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and MTV thriller Eye Candy.
“We’re thrilled to bring Victoria Justice into the fold as we develop our next round of fresh, young and vibrant material that can be tailored to her distinct point of view and considerable talent,” said Sharon Klein, 20th Century Fox Television’s EVP Casting. “She has an incredibly relevant fan base and major social media presence, making this a truly exciting partnership with unlimited options.”
Justice will next star in the indie romantic comedy Naomi + Ely’s No Kiss List, which will be released September 18 on iTunes.
She’ll also star in this fall’s high school comedy The Outskirts, opening wide November 6.
Her series credits also include Zoey 101 and iCarly.
