Notorious B.I.G. Comedy Series

Notorious B.I.G.-Inspired Comedy Series in Development at TBS

TBS is going for big laughs with its next project — like, B.I.G. laughs.

The network is currently developing Think B.I.G., a scripted series about an inner-city teen working towards a better life for his two children, TVLine has learned. According to TBS, the plotlines will be “loosely based on the lyrics of the late rapper The Notorious B.I.G.

Think B.I.G. is being created and produced by Mass Appeal; Bystorm Films’ Wayne Barrow and Notorious B.I.G. Inc.’s Voletta Wallace are also on board.

TBS has also ordered 10 episodes of Storyville, a comedy series that takes funny, real-life stories spun by famous people and turns them into animations which aim to expose the “sheer absurdity of celebrity life in all of its glory.” You can watch the Storyville pilot below:
