Snoop Dogg is keeping the "actor" part of his multi-hyphenate career alive with another TV project. According to Deadline, Snoop has sold a family comedy pitch to NBC.
The half-hour sitcom is about a father (Snoop, naturally) parenting his wayward brood. The rapper would also produce the multi-cam comedy.
In 2002, Snoop starred in MTV sketch comedy show “Doggy Fizzle Televizzle,” and he put his own family on camera with reality series “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood,” which aired on E! from 2007-2009.
What do you think about the Doggfather as a sitcom star?
