Deadline.com is reporting that Bruno Mars has inked a deal with NBC to co-create a new sitcom. Loosely based on elements from Mars’ own life, this yet to be named project is described as a “single-camera music family comedy,” Deadline says the show’s plot is set around a “boisterous, and quarrelsome family from the Bronx and what happens when they take in their wide-eyed, hopelessly optimistic 10 year old nephew.”
The music based bio series seems to be a running trend in Hollywood. Mars’ NBC deal comes on the heals of ABC Family’s announcement of a remarkably similar series based around Nicki Minaj’s real life. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
