Atlanta based rapper Ludacris has inked a development deal for a TV show with MTV. The deal is with MTVâ€™s new teen-based network, The N, to star in and produce a new series entitled, "Halls of Fame." The show will also be produced by Dallas Jackson and Amani Walker.
The show will be a drama that is based on two sisters, a singer Starla and her younger sister Taylor, a teen with dreams of becoming a fashion designer. Both girls attend the Philadelphia High School of Performing Arts.
New to the city, the sisters find themselves challenged by competition at school, relationships and other pressures, including each other.
"'Halls of Fame' promises to be a realistic journey into how young people can get started in the entertainment business," said Ludacris via a statement.
The rapper himself will have a recurring role, and will compose and perform original music for each episode.
"Whether it's music, fashion, dancing or acting, everyone has to start somewhere," Ludacris said. "Hopefully this program will show teens one way to go about it as well as the realistic obstacles they'll come up against. And there's no better place than The N for this show."
Along with producing the show, Ludacris will be reprising his role on "Law & Order," as well as promoting his new album, preparing for a tour and the full-fledged release of his clothing line in 2007
