ABC creating sitcom based on Bieber
Is Justin Bieber heading to TV? Never say never!
ABC is developing a comedy project that is based on the pop star's life story, sources confirm to E! News.
Bieber and his manager Scooter Braun would executive produce the currently untitled project (may we suggest The Fresh Prince of Canada?), along with Entourage's Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi, who are writing the script.
The show is being described as a family-centric comedy that revolved around a future pop star's unconventional upbringing and his awkward teenage years.
Originally intended as a multi-camera comedy for the 2011 season, the now single-camera project is under consideration for next season and has received a script commitment from the network.
Bieber has previously guest-starred on CSI and hosted MTV's Punk'd.
