Diet company Nutrisystem today announced that actress Melissa Joan Hart has signed on as the "brand ambassador" for the diet system.
Hart rose to fame in the early 90s in her role as Melissa Darling on the Nickelodeon TV show Clarissa Explains it All. She went on to play Sabrina Spellman in the long-running ABC TV series Sabrina the Teenage Witch. She currently stars in the ABC Family TV series Melissa & Joey.
“I love working with Nutrisystem," said Hart. "The Program is really delivering results for me and I look forward to long term success, staying motivated and helping others do the same.”
