The sitcom will be a single-camera comedy series
Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice coach Adam Levine is developing a sitcom about his life for NBC.
Deadline reports that the single-camera comedy series, called Kids In America, focuses on the singer’s life as an up-and-coming rocker in the 1990s. Inspired by Levine’s real-life experiences, the show “centers on an unconventional family as seen through the eyes of a teenager with the dream of becoming a rock star.”
The series has received a script commitment by The Peacock Network and comes from Levine’s 222 Prods and Universal TV.
Family Guy‘s Aaron Blitzstein will pen the script and will co-executive produce with Levine, longtime manager/producing partner Jordan Feldstein and development executive Josh Gummersall.
No word on casting or when a pilot will be filmed.
