Snoop Dogg is a step closer to adding sitcom star to his already broad resume.

The rapper, teamed with veteran sitcom producer Don Reo (“My Wife and Kids,” “Two and a Half Men”), has sold a family comedy pitch to NBC. The project centers on a father (Snoop) and his family of misfit children.

Reo would be writer and executive producer, with Snoop attached as a producer and star.

If it gets picked up to series, it will join Snoop’s other small-screen credits, including “Doggy Fizzle Televizzle,” a 2002 sketch comedy show he produced and starred in for MTV, and “Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood,” a reality series centering on his family for E!
