Kesha To Star in 'Highly Gifted' Animated Series

Kesha is taking her talents to the silver screen, as she will star in Maker Studios’ new animated series Highly Favored, The Wrap reports. Drake Bell (Ultimate Spider-Man, Drake & Josh) and Ron Funches (Undateable, Powerless) are set to be the pop star's co-stars.

The comedy will be a semi-autobiographical show based on the Lehrer Boys, two brothers known for their original hand-drawn cartoons. According to The Wrap, it will follow their experience being in highly-gifted programs, "where they existed in a precarious intellectual bubble within the larger school—an exotic and forbidden world, where people went on dates, attended sporting events, partied, and engaged in other exotic and mysterious rites and ceremonies." Daniel and Jeremy Lehrer confirmed the show's news on Instagram.
