The news was unveiled Monday by Kevin Hart at NBC Universal’s Upfronts presentation in which it was announced that the rapper would be hosting a series about the world’s dumbest criminals. It was also confirmed by Hart that there’s an upcoming comedy-sports news show in the beginning phases of development.
Hart signed a multi-year deal with Peacock last year which includes “an equity investment in the company, a first-look deal with LOL, and the distribution of LOL’s catalog on the service.”
On top of the two upcoming series the 49-year-old rapper entrepreneur has on the way with Peacock, Snoop also has another project in the works. In a recent interview with Yahoo, he confirmed that he’s also working on an anthology series that would chronicle his life, highlighting his upbringing, career, and more.
“I want to take my time and make sure that I’ve put together the right infrastructure of how I became me — you know, the people that inspire me, my upbringing, my mother, my father, my friends, community influences, inspirations that shaped and molded me,” he said of the newly announced project. “I don’t see it being a biopic, because I can’t give all of this great information and entertainment in two hours. But if I give it to you in an anthology, you’re likely to get six or seven seasons of this.”
