Snoop Dogg is taking his acting role to the next level as the iconic rapper is gearing up to star in a new family sitcom. He’s currently working with Don Reo on the project in which the rapper/actor will play the role of the father, says Deadline.com.

Although the show is currently in production at Warner Bros. TV, the new show has not yet found a network home. Interested fans and viewers should expect Snoop’s upcoming parental role to follow his real-life day to day as seen on his reality TV show “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood”  that was featured on E! Entertainment.

While the new sitcom details are still being worked out over at Warner Bros. TV, Snoop will also be featured in the new biopic,“The Legend of Fillmore Slim” which follows the life of a legendary pimp.

Not surprisingly, the rapper has decided to sign on as the role of a pimp where he will play the famous blues singer and guitarist, Clarence Sims (aka Filmore Sims) a well-known pimp during the 1960s and 70s in San Francisco.

Co-producer, Alan Ames, explains the new film:

“This film will span decades, from Slim’s emergence as a musician, to his fascination with the fast life, through his years of incarceration and his redemption.”

Sims, who will be overseeing certain aspects of the film, is 77 years old and currently touring. Hawthorne James will direct the film with pre-production starting in December and a March start date targeted.

Of course MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
