Ice Cube is destined to star in his first TV role. Deadline is reporting that Cube will star in Eye For An Eye, a new drama series from FX. Not only will he take the lead role, Mr Cube will be executive producing the project too.
Cube Vision, Ice's production company came up with the concept for the piece and they have developed the idea in conjunction with Jeff Kwatinetz's Prospect Park. Eye For An Eye centers on a complex man, played by Ice CUbe, who is a veteran paramedic. After too many years of leaving the scenes of violent crimes with a victime struggling to live in the back of his ambulance, he naps and starts going eye for an eye. When his thirst for revenge proves addictive, his personal life spirals out of control as he tries to reconcile it with his newfound life as a vigilante. Breaking Bad meets Dexter anyone?
The show has yet to find a writer yet, but Matt Alvarez is joining Cube in executive production duties.
Ice Cube can next be seen in 21 Jump Street and Rampart whilst he is also executive producing the TBS sitcom Are We There Yet based on his 2005 movie.
