Usher is developing a television series inspired by his music and is partnering with Universal Content Productions to do so. According to a new report from Variety, the series will focus on “Black love in Atlanta and individuals looking to find a place to call home.” Additionally, it will tackle “music, style, sex, romance, and secrets that threaten to tear relationships apart.”

“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.” Selwyn Seyfu Hinds, Katie Zucker, and Kenny Meiselas will serve as executive producers.
