Grammy-Award winning singer Bruno Mars has inked a deal with NBC to produce a family comedy pilot.
The proposed series, whose pilot is being written by Prentice Penny of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Happy Endings fame, centres on a boisterous musical family in the Bronx that takes in their wide-eyed 10-year-old relative, reported Entertainment Weekly.
Empire executive producer/Imagine co-founder Brian Grazer is among the executive producers on the single-camera project. Mars’ music is likely to be used in some capacity on the series.
The 30-year-old Just the way you are hitmaker is not the only music star to score a TV production deal in recent weeks.
