Pop star Britney Spears is now-a-days focusing on her acting career. The 24-year-old attended a meeting with Will & Grace star Sean Hayes and a group of producers, to discuss joining the cast of a new sitcom about teachers, tentatively titled Detention.

During the two hour meeting in late February, the singer read lines from a script and confessed that she was "aching to give acting a go". Spears guest starred alongside Hayes on Will & Gracein March, appearing as a conservative talk show host.

"Having seen the way Britney works, he knows she has potential," Ratethemusic quoted a source close to Sean Hayes as saying.

However the producers' main concern was that the pop star was pregnant with her second child. "First, she laughed and said, 'Do I look it?' Then she assured them that she wouldn't jeopardize a new project. Britney is up for it. Everyone will be meeting again soon," the source added.

The singer received mixed reviews for her performance in her debut movie Crossroads (2002).
