Pharrell to Produce New ABC Drama Limelight

pharrell1.jpgPharrell Williams has signed on as a consulting producer for a new drama called Limelight that will air on the ABC network. The series will focus on the students and faculty at a performing arts high school in New York, much like the one Pharrell attended in his home state of Virginia. “This project reminded me a lot of my own life growing up,” Williams said, “coming from a different environment where we stuck out for having abilities that we later learned, after attending a school like this, were actually gifts and talents. The moral DNA for this project is that it’s OK to dream, but to bring it to fruition requires hard work.” ABC landed the rights to the show after a bidding war that included the CW and Fox networks. Limelight will be executive produced by Joseph “McG” McGinty Nichol and David S. Rosenthal. “Pharrell is the ultimate embodiment of credibility in this space,” McG said. “He attended a performing arts high school and went on to become the most prolific producer of our generation.”

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    Pharrell ain’t never been a grimey gansta so how the hell is this selling out?

    Unless you mean:

    “Sell-out” = making paper by helping to produce a show on ABC which broadcast to over 100 million homes because it’s premise is about a subject you know about, the same subject in fact which helped you to become rich and famous.

    wake the fuck up people … oh and by the way, if someone from ABC offered you (anyone in this comment section) the same job, TAKE IT! (if you think you can pass the drug test)

    Rich and successful > cool and broke.

    All day. Everyday.

    Pharrell be rappin about gangsta shit sometimes…and hes not a gangsta right?!…hes frontin….i rather watch re-runs of Fresh Prince (ilovethatshow, no homo), then some dude whos gonna front in front of a camera for 30 minutes…and he doesnt care for the culture much, thats why everyone in this comment section sayin that show is gonna be lame :/

  • Flyfr0m84

    My Effin’ Opinion is right! If ABC offered any of you lames that job you would take it. Stop hatin on Skateboard P!

  • real talk

    damn why is it that when any kind of artist says something like along the lines of “i dont take any bullshit” or “you cant fuck with me” their automatically dubbed a gangsta or assumed to be talkin about “gangsta shit”
    just cuz dude aint fakin and frontin like he gotta rock a black T and tuck a Baretta 24/live dont mean that he aint a real ass dude and about is business. most of the ppl on here never talk about shit worthwhile but i just thought i throw in my 2 cents. Holla
