Gladys Knight — The Secret White House Project

Story Courtesy TMZ.com

Gladys Knight is pulling double duty … ’cause in between training sessions for “Dancing with the Stars,” TMZ has learned Knight is also working on a top secret scripted TV show.

Sources close to production tell us … Knight has been cast to star in a show called “The First Family” … about a fictional President of the United States who’s juggling work with his family life. We’re told Gladys is playing the President’s mother.

Sources connected to Gladys tell TMZ … the Motown legend is working extremely hard to handle both gigs … and producers on both shows are being very flexible to accommodate the star.

We’re told the sitcom is already garnering interest from a major network … which has made it clear they want to rush production to capitalize on Knight’s “Dancing” momentum.

We spoke with Byron Allen — the Executive Producer of “First Family” — who tells us, “Gladys is truly an American treasure and we’re excited to work with her.”
