Snoop Dogg and HBO Collaborate for a New Drama Series
Snoop Dogg and Director/producer Allen Hughes are collaborating for developing a new family drama at HBO.
News about the new untitled drama is limited however, as per sources it leads to Los Angeles of 1980s. The series will focus on a family whose world flips “by the collision of their community and American politics.”
Snoop Dogg, supposedly, grew up on the outskirts of L.A. City in the 70s and 80s so he has a clear view of the surrounding and the neighborhood.
Snoop who has left behind his gangster-rapper image goes back in time and almost the same neighborhood to prove himself as a versatile entertainer.
“HBO is the number one network in the world as far as developing and having these types of shows come to life,” said Snoop Dogg on Friday during South by Southwest keynote. “This is a dream come true to be able to tell a story that’s going to be told the right way on the right network.”
Rodney Barnes mostly known for ‘The Boondocks’ and ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ will write the untitled series featuring Snoop Dogg and it will be directed by Allen Hughes (Broken City, Dead Presidents, The Book of Eli and Gang Related).
This will not be Snoop Dogg’s first interaction with the TV industry; he gave his voice for a character in The Boondocks.
Details about the cast, title and release remain unknown.
