Movie star CHANNING TATUM is eyeing success on the small screen after signing a deal with Warner Bros. Television to executive produce a new scripted comedy.
The 21 Jump Street hunk has teamed up with screenwriter Nick Zano for the as-yet-untitled project, a half-hour, multi-camera show about a 30-year-old man as he tries to move out of his family home in New Jersey, only to realize he needs to stay to help raise his baby sister.
The plot is based on Zano's own life story being brought up in a house full of women, reports Deadline.com.
Tatum will serve as executive producer alongside Zano and Reid Carolin, who collaborated with the actor on stripper comedy Magic Mike, which was inspired by the star's own experiences as a teenage dancer in Florida.
