Comedian Martin Lawerence is looking to make his long-awaited return to television following his classic sitcom Martin and the FX series Partners. As first reported by Deadline, Lawerence will reteam with his Bad Boys producer Jerry Bruckheimer as well as legendary hip hop artist Snoop Dogg for a new political drama series in the works at CBS Studios titled Game.
Snoop Dogg and Martin Lawerence will star in the series as well as serve as producers alongside Jerry Bruckheimer via his production company. The series will be written by Treadstone scribe Patrick Aison and be set in Washington D.C. Additionally, both Snoop and Lawerence will help write the series as well.
Game will focus on two lifelong friends named Bobby and Dice. They soon find themselves playing a risky game of personal favors as they navigate the ever-changing political landscape in the nation’s capital. The series will be shopped around to a number of networks and streaming services with production set to begin later this year.
Coincidentally, this is not the first time the rapper and the comedian will appear on-screen together. In fact, the two starred in the 2019 stoner comedy The Beach Bum with Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey. Additionally, the Grammy Award-winning Snoop Dogg currently co-hosts Martha And Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party, with Martha Stewart on VH1. Up next, the rap legend will play himself in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run. Meanwhile, Martin Lawerence chooses his projects very carefully these days. The star last starred in Bad Boys for Life with Will Smith and will return for the franchise’s upcoming fourth installment.
