Atlanta’s busy Cee Lo Green is hoping to get a bit busier, if that’s even possible: he is nearing a deal to do a sitcom loosely based on his life for NBC, according to Deadline.com.
The former member of Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley and current judge on NBC’s “The Voice” recently appeared in the Whitney Houston film “Sparkle’ and the TV Land sitcom “The Soul Man” starring Cedric the Entertainer.
According to Deadline.com, Ali Leroi, co-creator of ‘Everybody Hates Chris” and “Are We There Yet?” will write the comedy. His co-judge on “The Voice” Adam Levine is making his own acting debut on “American Horror Story” on FX.
The colorful Green recently popped by Atlanta with his sister to launch non-profit GreenHouse Foundation to promote “green” education. And he had to postpone a Las Vegas show because he’s too busy.
“The Voice” returns on Monday at 8 p.m. for its third season.
I will later post what Simon Cowell had to say about “The X Factor.”
And the EW says the show has offered a judge’s seat for Enrique Iglesias. Others in talks: Adam Lambert, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban.
