Nickelodeon inks deal with Cymphonique

Cable net to develop series or add her to existing projects

Her name is Cymphonique, and she could be Nickelodeon's next teen star.

The cable channel has inked a substantial talent development deal with the 13-year-old actor/singer/dancer to develop series for her or add her to existing projects.

Additionally, Sony Music, which has a partnership with Nickelodeon, has signed Cymphonique to a record deal.

Under the pacts, Cymphonique could star in a comedy/musical or a straight comedy series.

"She is extraordinarily talented for somebody so young," Nickelodeon's executive vp talent Paula Kaplan said. "She has great comedic timing, an amazing voice and is very self-assured."

Additionally, "we have had long history with this family," she added.

Cymphonique is the daughter of Percy Miller, aka Master P, and the sister of actor-rapper Romeo.

Romeo, then billed as Lil' Romeo, was 9 when his father brought him to Nickelodeon. He headlined his own series on the channel for four seasons.

Nickelodeon is entering the comedy/musical series space with two upcoming shows: "Victorious," toplined by "Zoey 101" co-star Victoria Justice, and "Big Time Rush," about a boy band, which launches in January.

Cymphonique, who has appeared in an episode of Nickelodeon's "Just Jordan," was a finalist on Disney Radio's "N.B.T. (Next Big Thing)." She is repped by Fortitude.
