Hip-hop superproducer Timbaland is developing a new TV musical inspired by his own tough upbringing.
The artist, real name Timothy Mosely, has previously announced plans for his final album, titled Opera Noir, and he has decided to use the new material as a base for a musical of the same name.
The project, made in partnership with bosses at Leftfield Pictures, will follow a young musician as he struggles with poverty, substance abuse, and crime to climb his way to the top, reports Variety.com.
"Tim's unbelievable candor about his experiences and difficult past help illustrate one of the most epic success stories in the industry," states executive producer and Leftfield CEO David George.
"We're fortunate to be part of the 'grand finale' of an artist whose innovative and inspiring musical contributions have helped shape the business and will influence artists for years to come."
An air date has yet to be announced.
