John Legend Just Sold a Sitcom to NBC


John Legend — yes, that John Legend — has sold a sitcom to NBC called Mixed Blessings. It’ll be about “a prominent, black, street-bred hip-hop artist enjoying his single life who discovers that he has a teenage son and decides to connect with him and his white suburban family. The show explores the culture clash and the complicated journey of a father and son beginning their relationship as the dad soon discovers that fame, talent, and wealth get you nowhere when it comes to parenting.” Legend will executive produce alongside Mike Jackson, whose childhood the show is based on.
