Ice Cube Developing NBC Buddy Cop Comedy


Ice Cube is set to write and executive produce an hour-long buddy cop comedy for NBC, saysVariety. Universal Media Studios is behind the untitled project, as is Cube’s Cube Vision.

Besides Cube, Matt Alvarez — who runs the production company with him — is set to executive produce.

Cube is not attached to star in the project, but NBC executives are keeping their fingers crossed that the hip-hop star, actor and writer will make some appearances, perhaps even in the pilot. There’s always the possibility he’ll lend his music skills to the show’s opening credits.
