Adam Levine is a man of many talents. So far, he’s showed off his musical talents as the lead singer of Maroon 5 and by participating in NBC’s hit reality singing competition ‘The Voice.’ Now it looks like he’s taking a stab at writing and producing a small-screen comedy!
According to Deadline, Levine has just sold a single-camera comedy to the Peacock network based on his life with fellow friend and writer-producer Gene Hong (‘Community’). The potential comedy will be based on Levine’s real-life relationship with Hong. Before the duo became famous, they were best friends and roommates.
Both Levine and Hong will write and executive produce the pilot. They will also have help from Levine’s other childhood friend and longtime manager/producing partner Jordan Feldstein of 222 Prods (Levine’s production company).
This isn’t the first time Hong and Levine have joined forces. In 2011, they developed a karaoke bar comedy for NBC, which was based on their friendship and experiences at a karaoke bar where the two became good friends.
While we wait to see if NBC actually picks up the pilot, Levine fans can catch him on Season 5 of ‘The Voice,’ which premieres Monday, Sept. 23. This year the show is adding more experience and excitement, as it was just announced Levine selected OneRepublic lead singer Ryan Tedder (right) as his team’s advisor.
