An unusually high number of DWTS performers have non-dance commitments during Dancing with the Stars season 14. Keep reading to find out what celebrities Gladys Knight and Gavin DeGraw are up to when they're not on the dance floor.

A Sitcom for Gladys Knight
According to a report from TMZ.com, Gladys Knight has a whole new career beginning while she's dancing. The legendary singer has been cast in a new sitcom under development.

Called The First Family, the sitcom focuses on a President of the United States (fictional, of course) who has to balance family life with the responsibilities of running the nation. Gladys Knight is set to play the President's mother.

There is no word yet as to where The First Family might find a TV home, but it's probable that Gladys Knight's DWTS stint will speed up the broadcasting process.

What will this mean for Gladys' dancing chances? Only time will tell...
