Bruno Mars Teams With NBC & ‘Empire’ Producer For Scripted Music Comedy

Published: Thursday 8th Oct 2015 by Sam

Bruno Mars has conquered the charts and is now making a beeline for the small screen. Albeit behind the scenes.

Details below…

NBC have announced that they’ve picked up a pilot from the ‘Uptown Funk’ crooner.

Interestingly, the as yet untitled project is being developed in partnership with the executive producer of ‘Empire,’ Brian Grazer.

Deadline reports:

Written by Prentice Penny (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), the comedy follows a loud, boisterous, and quarrelsome family from the Bronx and what happens when they take in their wide-eyed, hopelessly optimistic 10 year old nephew.

The project is not based on Mars’ life though there are elements of his background in the idea. The Grammy-winning recording star was introduced to Penny who has had a life-long passion for music, and the two came up with the concept for a music family comedy. Penny and Imagine TV’s Gracer and Francie Calfo executive produce alongside Mars and his manager Brandon Creed.
