According to the Hollywood Reporter, CeeLo has inked a first-look deal with NBC to develop, produce and potentially star in a few new projects (both scripted and unscripted) for the network under his newly launched production company, Emerald Productions.
As part of the pact, NBC is circling a multicamera comedy loosely based on Green’s life balancing his career and home life as a producer and recording artist from Sony Pictures Television and Happy Madison. Everybody Hates Chris’ Ali Leroi will pen the project and executive produce alongside Green, and Primary Wave TV’s Andrew Jameson, Primary Wave Music CEO Larry Mestel and Happy Madison’s Doug Robinson.
Additionally, Jameson will oversee day-to-day operations of Green and his Primary Wave partner Mestel’s Emerald shingle. Green’s production company comes a month after the Grammy winner was named chief creative officer at Primary Wave Music, where he will develop and co-write music with artists.
Last year, Jameson developed, sold and produced Cee Lo Takes the U.K.: Christmas With All the Goodies, a Christmas TV special with Mark Burnett that starred Green.
“Cee Lo is one of the most unique artists that the entertainment world has ever seen,” said Jameson, a partner at Emerald Productions.
Beyond his work on The Voice, Green was also featured in a role in Sparkle, Whitney Houston’s final film. He also landed a role in the upcoming animated feature Hotel Transylvania, voicing Murray the Mummy.
Other ventures CeeLo’s producing include his own Las Vegas residency show, Loberace, which launches in February at Planet Hollywood. He’s also releasing a book and new Goodie Mob album is in the works as well as a new solo album.
One thing’s for sure… CeeLo’s a busy busy man these days!
