Man, there are a lot of weird shows coming to TV! Remember when we heard that Tyra Banks was working on an autobiographical series called Fivehead? And then there’s that forthcoming Hunger Games-esque reality show (that actually sounds kind of cool… if you can ignore, like, the whole message about the Capitol in The Hunger Games). And now, for those of you who’ve been wanting Justin Bieber’s life story to become a scripted ABC series, I have great news! Justin Bieber’s life story is becoming a scripted ABC series :) Click inside to learn more!
E! has the story:
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.
So, I’m a bit confused by this one. I can’t tell if Justin will be in it, or if the show will just be based on his life. All 12 1/2 years of it. Okay, I’m being unfair! And I’m sure millions of young girls everywhere are thrilled to hear this news, so there you have it. You gotta give the people what they want, lol.
Okay, I promise to not make fun of you if you admit that you kinda wanna watch. Are you into it? Hell, I’ll probably tune in for an episode… or, like, as much as I can take of an episode. About Justin Bieber’s life.
