Iggy Azalea is making her way into television production.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Aussie rapper recently signed a deal with Universal Cable Productions and Wilshire Studios to create millennial-targeted programming focused on topics ranging from social justice to women’s empowerment.
Azalea said in a statement:
“Creating television that is reflective of my generation has always been an aspiration of mine. I am incredibly excited to start working on my ideas and am humbled that Universal Cable Production and Wilshire Studios have given me this once-in-a-life opportunity.”
