snoop dogg nbc sitcom Snoop Dogg's sitcom goes to NBCThe network that was once home to sitcoms starring Will Smith and LL Cool J is hoping to turn Snoop Dogg into a comedy lead as well.

NBC has bought a pitch from Snoop and producer Don Reo (“My Wife and Kids”), according to The Hollywood Reporter. Snoop Dogg will star as the father of a group of unruly kids and also serve as a producer.

The premise sounds a little different than the idea we came up with when the project was first announced: A show called “What It Do, Nephew,” in which he takes in his brother or sister’s son. But that’s OK.

Snoop Dogg has a pretty sizable acting resume, including starring roles in “The Wash” and “Soul Plane” and several sitcom guest appearances, including two episodes of “Brothers” (which Reo executive produced) in the 2009-10 season. He also starred in the E! reality series “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood,” about his real-life family.

Those sitcoms with Smith and LL Cool J, by the way, were “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “In the House,” which only lasted one year on NBC before moving to UPN.
