Cee Lo Teaming With NBC to Develop New Comedy

Cee Lo made the jump from music to television when he became a judge on the hit show The Voice in 2011, and now he’s taking his partnership with NBC a step further.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Atlanta talent has signed a “first-look deal with NBC to develop, produce and potentially star in new projects—scripted and unscripted—for the network under his newly launched production company, Emerald Productions.” The first project will be a scripted comedy, said to be based on the Goodie Mob member’s life and work. Ali Leroi, who has worked on Everybody Hates Chris and Are We There Yet, will write the show and executive produce alongside Cee Lo and others.

“Cee Lo is one of the most unique artists that the entertainment world has ever seen,” said Andrew Jameson, another executive producer, who is also part of Primary Wave TV, where Cee Lo was named chief creative officer recently. “I am excited to be his partner and look forward to extending his creative vision into the television world.”

There are no details regarding a timetable for the show yet.
