According to AllHipHop.com, LL Cool J has signed a seven figure deal to develop and produce a new dramatic television series for CBS and Alchemy Entertainment.
Am I the only one who finds this bizarre? I’m not hating –yes, I know that this is the first thing that all haters say– but I can’t imagine what would prompt someone to pay LL millions to develop drama. Perhaps it was his Emmy-worthy role as Marion Hill in In The House. Or maybe it was his classic romantic comedy with Garielle Union.
While I’m genuinely happy that a brother was able to secure a big deal, I can’t help but think that there were more worthy candidates. Who wouldn’t prefer to see Don Cheadle, Hill Harper, Denzel Washington, or even Mos Def at the helm?
Still, much support and success to Uncle L!
