Bruno Mars Producing TV Comedy Series
Pop star Bruno Mars is branching out into TV production to develop a new comedy series with Hollywood mogul Brian Grazer. The “Uptown Funk” singer has teamed up with Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer Prentice Penny for the new show, which will follow the adventures of a “loud, boisterous” family band from the Bronx, New York.
Apollo 13 producer Grazer, who also serves as an executive on Lee Daniels’ hit hip-hop drama Empire, is also onboard the project, alongside Bruno’s manager, Brandon Creed. The as-yet-untitled show will air on NBC network, although a premiere date has yet to be announced, reports Deadline. Bruno, whose father hails from Brooklyn, has some experience with family musicians. His sisters Tiara, Tahiti and Presley Hernandez make up the girl group The Lylas.
