Snoop Dogg is working with television veteran Ron Reo on a traditional family sitcom for Warner Bros. TV. The rapper will play the patriarch of a family in the show, which may be loosely based on his real life, which was portrayed in the E! reality show Snoop Dogg's Father Hood. Snoop previously worked with Reo in a story arc on the Fox sitcom Brothers.
