    Bobbi Kristina, pictured with Oprah Winfrey, is set to make her acting debut on Tyler Perry's sitcom "For Better or Worse."

    Bobbi Kristina Brown will be making her acting debut in Tyler Perry’s TBS sitcom “For Better or Worse,” the Daily News reported.

    The news comes several weeks after the 19-year-old revealed to Oprah Winfrey her hope to follow in her mother’s footsteps.

    “I gotta carry on her legacy,” Bobbi Kristina said. “It’s a lot of pressure, but [my mom] prepared me for it.”

    The Los Angeles Times reported that a representative for Perry confirmed the casting, but no further details were provided.

    Perry, 42, is a close friend of the Houston family. He spoke at Houston’s funeral and offered his private jet to fly Houston’s body home.

    Bobbi Kristina will play a recurring role in the sitcom, her first major role as an actress.

    The comedic series, which is based on Perry’s hit films “Why Did I Get Married?” and “Why Did I Get Married Too?,” centers around a married couple played by Michael Jai White and Tasha Smith.
