Adam Levine has signed a development deal with NBC. The Maroon 5 singer and coach on NBC's The Voice has landed a one-year first-look development deal at the network with longtime manager-turned-producing partner Jordan Feldstein, brother of actor Jonah Hill. The duo will create scripted and other programming for NBC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Levine has previously pursued similar projects, including a producing role on a scripted ensemble comedy set at a karaoke bar that NBC was developing at NBC in 2011. Since joining The Voice, Levine has landed roles in film (the forthcoming Can a Song Save Your Life?) and TV (American Horror Story). He also hosted Saturday Night Live this past January, and launched his own fragrance in February.

"It would be impossible to quantify Adam's influence and importance to the success of The Voice," said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming for NBC Entertainment. "Given those enormous contributions, we're very anxious to work with him and Jordan to see what future shows they develop that can find a home here at NBC."

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
