Staying on-brand for the "Truth Hurts" singer, Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls follows Lizzo as she searches for women that embrace their every curve and can dance with the best of them. As she gears up for her world tour, she is on a mission to make sure there will be a representation of ladies on her stage that don’t necessarily self-identify as skinny or thin. 

The new unscripted show marks Lizzo’s second foray into television/streaming this year. Fans of the musician will recall she recently voiced herself in the Disney Plus The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. While Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls is heavily focused on the contestants, those who enjoy the Grammy-award-winning artist hope they get to see a lot of her big personality and hear new music when the series premieres.
