NBC developing comedy for Cee Lo Green
Now that he’s conquered the competition reality show genre, Cee Lo Green is setting his sights on the network sitcom biz.
NBC will develop a comedy that is based, in part, on Green’s relationship with his ex-wife and kids. He would potentially star and executive produce the sitcom, while Ali Leroi (Everybody Hates Chris) would pen the script. Green would play a top recording artist in the sitcom, natch. But make note: This is in the early stages of development, Voice fans, so it’s unclear whether the show will even go to pilot.
Green’s the second judge to score a gig away from The Voice, which returns Monday. Adam Levine has booked a spot on American Horror Story: Asylum, which returns to FX in October.
