T.I. Atlanta's Most Wanted

TVLine Items: T.I. to Star in Fox Cop Drama, Younger Hits Hulu and More

Tip “T.I.” Harris has his eye on Atlanta’s Most Wanted at Fox.

The actor-rapper will star in and executive-produce the police procedural, which just got a script commitment plus penalty from the network, our sister site Deadline reports.

The drama project — from Jerry Bruckheimer Television and writer Rodney Barnes (The Boondocks) — follows Marcus Armstrong (Harris), the son of an infamous Atlanta criminal who is recruited to be a part of a new vice squad that tackles the city’s growing criminal elements. Marcus’ involvement in the group jeopardizes his own long-held secret.

Harris’ acting credits on the small screen include Roots, Single Ladies, House of Lies and Boss.

    Does that mean new episodes of Younger season 4 are going to air on Hulu too?

    Fox cancelled Pitch for this crap? This is pathetic.

      I’m not seeing that stated anywhere in the article? I have no interest in anything on Fox but comments like yours always sound so silly.

    I guess since Lethal Weapon worked so well( sort of) for FOX it makes sense they would go after another male buddy cop procedural

    So excited about “Younger” – I wondered why it wasn’t on Hulu!
