True story time. Post-Goodie Mob, pre-Gnarls Barkley Cee Lo Green was a wild beast. Not really a mainstream artists after releasing two solo albums, but a wild beast nonetheless. I caught him live during this time in his career and the most striking thing about the tattooed budda-esque man on stage was his decision to forgo a shirt altogether, squeeze into a pair of leather pants and utilize a long pink boa to accentuate his closet freakiness. Cee Lo didn’t care if you thought he was sexy, he knew he was sexy. And that ladies and gentlemen is how A) someone gets pregnant, and B) sitcoms get sexier.
Cee Lo just inked a deal to develop, produce, and possibly star in some TV shows for NBC. One of the first projects to rise is a multi-camera sitcom loosely based on Green’s life of pink boas and leather pants as the star of the show balances his life as a producer and recording artist. Everybody Hates Chris’ Ali Leroi will write the show’s script alongside Green, and Primary Wave TV’s Andrew Jameson, Primary Wave Music CEO Larry Mestel and Happy Madison’s Doug Robinson.
