‘The Voice’: Adam Levine furthers relationship with NBC, sells comedy project

Big news -Adam Levine is apparently not someone who is already content with a job on “The Voice,” huge record sales with Maroon 5, a designer fragrance, countless other products, and a record label. He apparently needs to have other possible TV gigs to make him happy, even though this one is not going to necessarily be with him as a star.

Levine and writer-producer Gene Hong (“Community“) have sold a script to NBC for a single-camera comedy that would be loosely based on Levine’s life, which we supposed could have some comedy in it given that there are so many weird and wacky things that happen as a musician.

While it’s understandable to start getting excited at the thought of Adam getting his own show, there is one bit of advice that we would give to you: Exercise a little bit of caution here. Cee Lo Green previously had a similar sort of script deal last year on a possible show, but it ended up not even getting ordered to pilot.

For neophytes to the TV industry, the first move is that the network typically either picks up a possible project or a script, and then develops it to a point where they would want to see a pilot. Out of the pilots that are made, a percentage of them (typically less than half, depending on the network) are greenlit into series. There are times when things are done a little differently, but this is the basic gist.

Levine made his TV acting debut last fall on “American Horror Story: Asylum” and then eventually went on to host “Saturday Night Live” for the first time earlier this year.
