The former Spice Girls singer will appear alongside Lowe, who stars as a professional tennis player in the comedy. It is not yet known what role Brown will play in the show.

Lowe confirmed the news via Twitter.com over the weekend, writing, “It’s a casting avalanche! Spice Girl Mel B joins us on The Pro.”

Brown has also signed up as a judge on reality TV show “America’s Got Talent,” which kicks off in May, and she is currently a coach on “The Voice Kids Australia,” which will hit screens Down Under later this year.
