The movie is called The Under Doggs, and it will premiere on January 26 on Prime Video, according to a press release.

What it is about? Jaycen “Two Is” Jennings, played by Snoop Dogg, is a washed-up ex-professional football star who has hit rock bottom. But when Jaycen is sentenced to community service coaching an unruly pee-wee football team, the Under Doggs, in his hometown of Long Beach, California, he sees it as an opportunity to rebuild his public image to turn his life around.

As Jaycen works to transform the “foul-mouthed" Under Doggs into top-notch champions, he reconnects with his past, which includes an old girlfriend and a few of his ex-teammates, rediscovering his love of the game of football.

The movie will feature a star-studded supporting cast, including Mike Epps, Andrew Schultz, Tika Sumpter and George Lopez. It also features cameos from Deion Sanders and Michael Strahan as well as the Fox NFL studio team.

In essence, it’s a comedy that pays tribute to Snoop’s work as a youth football coach in the LBC.

Snoop has been turning many heads in the past few months. As a famous rapper, he chose to partner with Chris Stapleton earlier this year to reimagine the Monday Night Football theme Song.

Then, in doing the most Snoop Dogg thing to date, he nailed his new campaign with Solo Stove by telling everyone he was “giving up smoke.” Social media blew up when this happened, but in November he announced that the move was just related to smokeless firepits.

Snoop is also in the stages of creating his very own biopic, according to Variety Magazine. Right now, he’s a step closer to the big screen, as director Allen Hughes confirmed the Universal biopic about the performer is set to begin production imminently.

“That’s next. We’re starting this summer. I’m so excited,” Hughes told Variety right before the premiere of Dear Mama, which chronicled the lives of the late great Tupac and his mother, Afeni Shakur.
