[AllHipHop News] Rapper Bow Wow is bringing his acting talents to the small screen, via a new partnership with TV/movie director, Ice Cube.

Bow Wow, who stars in Tyler Perry’s latest movie “Madea’s Big Happy Family,” has also had major roles in box office hits such as “Like Mike,” “Roll Bounce,” and “Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift.”

The rapper, who also starred in two Ice Cube produced flicks (“All About the Benjamins” and “Lottery Ticket”) is re-teaming with the hit director on an upcoming, untitled sitcom.

Bow Wow told AllHipHop.com that longtime mentor/Atlanta mogul Jermaine Dupri will create the score for the series.

“I just spoke with JD yesterday and I got him doing the score and he is actually about to do the music for the TV show sitcom that I am doing with Ice Cube,” Bow Wow told AllHipHop.com.

“I partnered with Ice Cube and he is producing my sitcom,” the rapper continued. “I told JD when Will [Smith] had his own show ["The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"], Quincy Jones did all the music so it’s only right that he does mine. So I got him doing all the scores to the TV show. I speak to JD daily.

The untitled sitcom is still in the early stages, so while details were scant, Bow Wow said the deal had just been signed and writers were currently being sought for the television show.
