TBS Developing Comedy Inspired By Notorious B.I.G.

Notorious BIG

Nearly 20 years since his death, Biggie is coming to TBS.

The network announced this week that it is developing a scripted comedy, inspired by the late Notorious B.I.G., titled Think B.I.G..

The show will focus on a teenage father of two in the inner city, trying to make his way, with storylines loosely based on Biggie's rhymes. The series is being created and produced by Mass Appeal, in partnership with Wayne Barrow of Bystorm Films and Voletta Wallace for Notorious B.I.G. Inc.

Mass Appeal is also teaming with TBS for Storyville, an animated digital series. A few test runs have been released online, including the one below, where Questlove speaks on an encounter with Prince.
