"Following a report in yesterday’s New York Post revealing that Britney Spears is pursuing TV work, NBC announced today that Spears will be appearing in season two of “American Gladiators”.
Spears, who recently appeared in an episode of CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother”, has, according to the Post, been offered a spot on NBC’s “30 Rock”. As reported by the TV Envy blog, “a Spears insider told the Postï¿½??s Page Six that Jamie wants his daughter to have a more normal 9-5 job to keep her working and out of trouble.”
Spears’ role on “American Gladiators” will be a “celebrity gladiator” who competes against contestants in a new event called “Paparazzi.” According to the press release:
Each competitor, supplied with a digital camera, will pursue the celebrity gladiator through an obstacle course, as the gladiator attempts to avoid being photographed. The contestant with the most photos of the celebrity gladiator will receive ten big points!
NBC has not announced the name of the male celebrity gladiator, or even if there will be one. While Britney Spears could presumably fill the role for both male and female competitors, co-ed competitions have not traditionally been the norm on “American Gladiators”.
