Justin Bieber Sitcom: In Development at ABC

at . Comments

Justin Bieber was raised by a single mother in Canada. He was discovered by a hip hop icon in America based on a few YouTube videos and has gone on to dominate the pop music world.

Sounds like the makings of a sitcom, huh? ABC sure hopes so.


The network is reportedly developing a single-camera comedy around the early life of this 19-year old icon, with Bieber and manager Scotter Braun among those who would produce it.

TV Guide first reported the news and says the series would center around Justin's "awkward teenage years and his unorthodox family."

Bieber, who has guest-starred on CSI, would not star on the show, but it's hard to believe he wouldn't make an occasional appearance.

Would you tune in? And, more importantly, would should ABC title this program?
