Snoop Dogg is Developing an Anthology Series About His Life and Career
Snoop Dogg is developing an anthology series based on his life and career, which could span “six or seven seasons.”
Snoop was asked whether he’d be interested in working on a sequel or companion project to the NWA biopic “Straight Outta Compton.”
Snoop said he would potentially get involved in a follow-up “if it’s told through the right eyes, through the right lens.”
He added, “But I think what makes the most sense to me is the ‘Snoop Dogg anthology’, the life story of Snoop Dogg, where it starts with my mother and father meeting each other before I was even born, to me being born, to me growing through the ‘70s and ‘80s and the ‘90s. Me being the ‘Black Forest Gump’, so to speak, seeing me in all of these highlighted moments in American history.”
Snoop went on to confirm that the anthology series is currently being developed. He’s just taking his time to get the right information out.
He said, “I don’t want to rush to it just because ‘Straight Outta Compton’ was successful, just to come behind it. I want to take my time and make sure that I’ve put together the right infrastructure of how I became me – you know, the people that inspire me, my upbringing, my mother, my father, my friends, community influences, inspirations that shaped and molded me.”
Snoop said the project is unlikely going to be a biopic because he “can’t give all of this great information and entertainment in two hours. But if I give it to you in an anthology, you’re likely to get six or seven seasons of this.”
