Pitch Perfect's Anna Kendrick has a new gig lined up - and it’s not just acting

The Pitch Perfect is embarking on her most exciting role yet.

By Sabrina Islam
Before she known for the Pitch Perfect films, Anna Kendrick starred as the jealous classmate Jessica in the Twilight saga films.
With a wicked sense of humour and lovable guest on chat shows, Kendrick has the whole package - so what's next for the star?

Well, it seems Anna is taking a break from the world of movies to star in the new anthology TV show Love Life.
The series will be available on WarnerMedia Streaming and it one of their first original programs.
Paul Feig is also on board with the project as an executive producer as is Jessie Henderson (Other Space).
Feig and Kendrick have worked together previously when Feig directed her and Blake Lively for the thriller film A Simple Favour.
So far we know that love Love Life will consist of 10 half-hour episodes focusing on a different chapter of Kendrick's character's romantic history for the first season.
Each season will focus on a new main character but Kendrick will remain as producer for the show.
The official synopsis for the show is that it's "the journey from first love to last love, and how the people we're with along the way make us into who we are when we finally end up with someone forever."
Watch the trailer for A Simple Favour, Kendrick and Feig's last project together, below. Story continues after video.
Sam Boyd (Stan Against Evil) who wrote the pilot will be directing too.
Boyd will oversee the first season of the show, and if his writing does the show justice and picks up a good following then perhaps Lionsgate TV and WarnerMedia will have him oversee the next season as well?
WarnerMedia streaming is a newer option on the market for web series. Kendrick could just be the enticing actress needed to lure more clientele towards it but there is still THAT question hanging in the air: With so many options for streaming web series available on the online market will people fork out the money for yet another streaming service?

The streaming service is reportedly being beta tested later this year with hopes of being ready to launch in 2020.
Other works Kendrick has lined up include Human Discoveries a Facebook animated series she will star in with Zac Efron, a role in director Chris Miller's film The Day Shall Come, and another role in a sci-fi thriller Stowaway.
We're excited to see what she does next!
