Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent are executive producing “Family Affair,” a new musical comedy series at ABC.
According to Variety, the single-camera series follows A-ron, a faded R&B star and committed bachelor whose life is thrown into a tailspin when he’s saddled with raising his sister’s four kids.
A-ron is overwhelmed and underwater until he discovers that musical talent runs in the family. With their sights set on success, A-ron’s about to learn that managing a music group might be hard, but raising four kids is even harder.
ABC has given “Family Affair” a put pilot order after multiple networks were in a bidding war for the series.
This will mark the second project for 50 Cent and Mary J. Blige, who are working together on the Starz series, “Power Book II: Ghost.”
I will keep you posted as more scoop becomes available about this project.
