Cee Lo would star as a version of himself as he struggles to balance his home life with his music career. He will serve as an executive producer on the project, which is being written by Ali Leroi (Everybody Hates Chris) and is in final negotiations at the network.

The musician appeared on another NBC family show, Parenthood, as himself last season. He can also currently be seen in the film Sparkle.

  • Ugh, what is up with NBC and multi-camera comedies lately. They must be a whole lot cheaper to make. Whitney is terrible and I’m sure Guys With Kids will be horrible. Cee Lo acting is just not something people want to see. I doubt this will even get green-lit

  • NBC will soon be the worst network of all. The only good think about it was its Thursdays comedies (besides one or another show like Chuck and Friday Night Lights). But all this new shows are crap, crap, crap. My response to this is the name of that only hit of him.

    First Whitney, Chelsea, Monkey M.D., Unfunny Guys with Kids… and now this?

    • Soon? Where have you been the last few years. Even the lowly CW beats them on some nights.

  • Someone fell asleep at the greenlght wheel. I can think of several other members of The Goodie Mob that I’d rather see get a primetime slot. Big Gipp for example, I’m sure he’d do better than the bleating goat-tub that creeps things up on The Voice.

    He must have very good dirt on some NBC execs or had very good representation at his last contract renewal.

  • I adore Cee-Lo Green, but I don’t think this is a good idea. He is good in small delectable doses.

  • How did this guy go from Goodie Mob to singing horrible commercial crap to now a comedy show? Goodie Mob fell off after a few albums so they plucked the short fat guy out of the bunch. I’d rather have Big Gipp than this moron.
