Snoop Dogg to star in reality TV show

US cable network snap up rights to film rapper

Snoop Dogg has signed up to appear in a reality TV show in the US.

The series, which will see the rapper balancing family duties with his hip-hop career, is to be screened by cable network E! Entertainment.

“The juggling act that Snoop faces day-in, day-out between career and family is certain to resonate with our viewers,” said Ted Harbert, president of the Comcast Entertainment Group, which operates the channel.

As previously reported on NME.COM, the rapper has had several run ins with the law.

He missed a number of tour dates in London and Manchester with fellow rap star P Diddy in March after he was refused a visa.

In April, Australian immigration officials also banned him because of a US court case where he pleaded no contest to gun and drug charges.

Following that case, he was given five years’ probation and was ordered to carry out 800 hours community service, reports BBC News.
