Global superstar Lizzo is one of the world’s most recognisable women for a reason. Not only does she know how to put out catchy tune after catchy tune, but she is an accomplished flautist, actress and badass body positivity activist who just emanates humour and joy 24/7.

So, naturally, with the news that the ‘Truth Hurts’ singer was turning her talents to TV, we were very excited.

As part of her first-look deal with Amazon Studios,  Lizzo brings us a powerful eight-episode Amazon Original unscripted series, called Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, which will see her on the hunt for confident, bad-ass women to join the elite ranks of the Big Grrrls and join her world tour. 

With 10 hopeful women moving into the Big Grrrls House, they must prove they have what it takes to make it to the end and join Lizzo in front of a global audience on the centre stage.  

Joining Lizzo to help her in the search for dynamic dancers are legendary choreographers Tanisha Scott and O.G. Big Grrrls Chawnta’ Marie Van, Shirlene Quigley, and Grace Holden, and several special guests, including choreographer Charm La’Donna, body movement expert Rashida KhanBey Miller, and multi-platinum singer/songwriter SZA.  

In an interview with Variety, Lizzo spoke about why she had felt so passionately about creating the series, to begin with, citing the difficulties faced by the people she works with as backup dancers.

“The girls I have on stage with me are not getting representation,” she said. “They are not getting agents. And I was like, ‘I know there is raw talent that’s untapped. If I have to start a f—king television show to get enough attention to find these girls and get them prepared to join me onstage, then so be it.’ This has been a passion of mine for a long time: discovering and mentoring big-girl dancers, especially Black girls.”

She went on to elaborate, “Agents represent girls they feel like have value. I think bigger bodies have been devalued in the industry. We’re not getting agents because we’re not getting jobs. We’re not getting jobs because we don’t have agents…. These girls should be getting representation ASAP. Hopefully, this show helps that.”

Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls, will premiere in Australia on Friday, March 25, only on Prime Video.
