Snoop Dogg is going to star in a project where he plays a former NFL pro looking to jump-start his career as a youth football coach. This show will be called "The Underdoggs." Kenya Barris is also starring in the show.
You have to respect a celebrity's career when their stage name follows them from project to project. "Dogg" or "Snoop" works with every single project. Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus Jr, had his first album released back in 1991. He's been a paragon of Hip hop culture ever since.
"Described as “The Bad News Bears” meets youth football, the film revolves around former NFL superstar Jaycen “2Js” Jenning (Snoop Dogg), who agrees to coach a youth football team in hopes of jumpstarting his career after he has a run-in with the law."
The project is going to be directed by Charles Stone. The script is based on an idea from Snoop Dogg himself.
“The Underdoggs is a real personal project for me considering that I’ve been coaching football for 15+ years with the Snoop Youth Football League that I started with my long-time business partner Constance Schwartz-Morini. Giving back to the community through football has taught us so many invaluable life lessons that we’ve been able to share with kids in similar situations like mine when I was growing up. My hope is that this movie will shed light on the realities that kids and adults face in the hood and within the complex world of football.”
The production crew behind the show is well accoladed. Producers behind the hit show "Blackish" and "Mixed-ish" are writing and directing them. This show may get made fun of before it's released for being a purely "Snoop" vehicle, but the writers and producers of the show are legit, and this could be a ton of fun.
Give me all the Snoop content, please.
