Usher's Music Will Be Turned Into A New Drama Series

Arguably the greatest male R&B artist of all time will get a drama series based on his music.

Usher, the Super Bowl LVIII halftime headliner and the music perfectionist, will executive produce a drama inspired by his music, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Also executive producing the show are Selwyn Seyfu Hinds (Hulu’s Washington Black) and Katie Zucker of Mad Massive and Kenny Meiselas of Kmei Productions.


“My 30-year catalog has resonated with so many people no matter where they were in their lives,” Usher said in a statement. “I’m happy to be working with UCP to bring the music to life. I hope the series resonates with you the way my music continues to.”


With it being untitled thus far, the show will be set in Atlanta, focusing on “Black love and individuals looking to find a place to call home." The series will look into music, style, sex, romance and secrets that compromise relationships, according to its logline. But a writer isn’t attached to it as of yet, and UCP hasn’t taken the project out to potential buyers.


In addition to the Super Bowl halftime show, Usher most recently culminated a two-year Las Vegas residency and also released a new album, Coming Home, on Feb. 9. Usher is slated to go on tour for his album in August.


According to Variety, he will start a 24-city tour entitled, “Past Present Future.” The tour includes stops in Atlanta, Miami, New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Specifically, it starts Aug. 20 and will culminate Oct. 29.


“Man, I’m really enjoying the work that comes with this,” Usher said to Vibe. “I’m finally going to get a chance to enjoy all of it. Not to say that I didn’t enjoy the residency, but I’m saying I really get a chance to enjoy this moment.”


Usher put everything in perspective.


“You know what it is? That’s God’s way of having a sense of humor because those things – Sometimes I’m mindful of, but for the most part, they just happen the way that they’re supposed to," he said. "And that is the treat for me to be able to see those and say, ‘Wow, I did do that. I didn’t realize that that happened.'”
