Snoop Dogg Family Comedy Lands at NBC
Snoop Dogg is a step closer to adding sitcom star to his already broad resume.
The rapper, along with veteran sitcom producer Don Reo (My Wife and Kids, Two and a Half Men), with whom he did an arc for on Fox's Brothers, has sold a family comedy pitch to NBC. The project centers on a father (Snoop) and his family of misfit children.
The multi-cam half hour, which hails from Warner Bros. TV, counts Reo as a writer and executive producer, with Snoop attached as a producer and star. Ted Chung (Dogg After Dark) will also serve as a producer on the project.
If it ultimately gets picked up to series, it will join Snoop's other small screen credits, including Doggy Fizzle Televizzle, a 2002 sketch comedy show he produced and starred in for MTV, and Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood, a reality series centering on his family for E!.
Both Snoop and Reo are both repped by Paradigm.
