Snoop Dogg’s new sitcom gets a home at NBC, now onward with the pilot. The legendary rapper will co-produce the series with Ted Chung. Don Reo, who wrote the script, will be the executive producer.
The song writer will also play the father in the family comedy. Reo has worked on shows such as, “My Wife and Kids,” and “Two and a Half Men.” The premise of the show will center around the rap artist playing a father that deals with his misfit children.
The rapper has some television experience, since he was the star of the reality show for E!, called “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood.” The show followed his wife and three children. His acting experience includes appearances in a remake of “Starsky and Hutch,” “Bad Boys II” and “Next Friday.”
Moreover, he also wants to launch his own televised talent show like “America’s Got Talent” or “The X Factor.” The twist though it would be for people from deprived areas of the country.
“The ‘American Idol’ and ‘X Factor’ shows, they’re great shows. But I think I need to make a show like that, that’s directed straight to the hood. To the artists that don’t get the attention, that don’t have the money to make themselves representable. This raw talent and ability. I’m looking for a deal from one of you TV networks to give Snoop Dogg his own hood TV show where I can find America’s hottest hood artists. Holla at me,” he said.
