When you hear Snoop Dogg's name, there is never any telling what he might be attached to. While being most famous for his mega career in music, he has worked on a series of children's books, recently appeared on the season finale of Empire and even killed it at Comedy Central Roasts. Coming off his appearance on Fox, Snoop and HBO have announced a partnership to bring a new series to the network.
Little is known about the series, but here is what we do know. It will be a family drama based in 1980s Los Angeles and will follow a family "whose seemingly idyllic life is turned upside down by the collision of their community and American politics." Snoop is currently listed as Executive Producer, but it is unlikely that a series executive produced by Snoop could go on the air without a theme song written and produced by the artist.
The series will be penned by The Boondocks writer Rodney Barnes and directed by The Book of Eli director Allen Hughes. The timing of this announcement seems perfect, with HBO Now set to premiere next month, allowing a new group of consumers to access HBO's content. It is also a perfect pairing, considering Snoop's love for the network's Game of Thrones, even writing a song for a show-inspired mixtape.
We do not currently know a premiere date for Snoop's show, but if it has only just been announced, it is likely we won't see it before 2016.
