It sold its first project to Fox in October - a comedy project, which will center on a guy in his early 20s who becomes the guardian to his own siblings, while having to manage his fledgling career as well as a social life.
The pilot for the untitled series is being penned by Tommy Dewey & Greg Bratman, and is said to be loosely based on John Legend’s years growing up.
Announced this morning, Legend has sold a second project - this time to the USA network.
Titled The Edge, THR describes it as a crime drama about "an idealistic Harvard Business School graduate named Jeff Cross who joins a progressive financial firm called Edgeton Global (aka The Edge), where he discovers the company's dark secrets while becoming entangled in a high-stakes FBI investigation."
The script will be penned by Justin Herber and Adam Hoff; Legend, along with his partners at Get Lifted Film Company, Mike Jackson and Ty Stiklorious, will executive produce.
THR is calling this Legend's first sale under his UCP deal; I'm not sure what that means for the Fox comedy project he sold last October. Unless that was under a different deal altogether.
Legend is expanding his brand, as part of a concerted effort to grow his empire beyond music, calling it the “next step forward in building Get Lifted.”
No word on casting on either project.
