Snoop Dogg Gets NBC Sitcom Deal
First Ice Cube went from gangsta to friendly icon, we saw Ice-T transform from “cop killer” to full-time onscreen officer, and now Snoop Dogg is taking his Doggfather role to the small screen after landing a sitcom deal with NBC.
Following in the footsteps of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Snoop will star and produce the family show but he will star as a father.
The D-O double-G had his real parental experiences captured on television on his E! reality series
Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood where cameras followed him and his wife and three kids for two seasons.
Don Reo, who worked with Snoop on the sitcom Brothers and also co-created My Wife And Kids is writing the show.
Deadline Hollywood noted that Will Smith’s successful sitcom was the extreme case of musician’s with programs on NBC, while Sisqo had a 2001 pilot co-starring Bob Newhart that never debuted.
