As one of the judges on NBC’s widely successful talent show “The Voice,” Cee Lo Green is no stranger to primetime network television. Now, in a recent report from Deadline, it looks like the Goodie Mob emcee is looking to expand his role into the realm of scripted TV.
Cee Lo is in the works to star in a new multi-camera, as-of-yet untitled sitcom for NBC. Based on Green’s relationship and experiences with his ex-wife and children, Green will play himself as he juggles his family life and recording career.
The sitcom is set to be penned by TV veteran Ali Leroi, co-creator of “Everybody Hates Chris” and developer of “Are We There Yet?” Green will also serve as the show’s executive producer, along with Leroi and Happy Madison’s Doug Robinson, Andrew Jameson and Larry Mestel.
This program isn’t Cee Lo’s first foray into the world of acting; the Atlanta singer/emcee recently starred in the feature film Sparkle.
