If anything, pop singer Justin Bieber has proved that he’s led a colorful life. The Canadian has managed to capture the American dream, and has been riding a wave of fame for some time now. His star has soared so far that he encounters stalkers, disturbing death threats, and obsessive Bieber fans.
So, it was only a matter of time before Bieber capitalized on the success he gained with his 3D film Never Say Never to create a television show. Bieber and his manager Scooter Braun decided to turn his real life story into a lighthearted single-camera comedy for ABC family. The comedy is still under construction, and has been revived since it was first developed last year.
Bieber is said to executive produce the show with his manager. Also attached to the project are executive producers Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi, who are also writing the script. The fictional family is said to be based off of Bieber’s and will be the central part of the show. The untitled family will resemble the life Justin Bieber had before he became famous — a look into the pop star’s awkward tween years in his unorthodox family.
The duo of Wolpert and Nedivi have previously contributed their talents to Entourage, the HBO show that was a rags to riches story about the Hollywood struggle. ABC studios is currently producing the Bieber show with Scooter Braun Films.
Justin is no stranger to the television world. In recent years he’s made a guest stint on CSI, hosted the return of MTV’s Punk’d and appeared in his very own television special called, Justin Bieber: All Around the World.
