Sean Combs To Produce New ABC Comedy Titled ‘The Hustle’!

Comedy News

Sean Combs is ready to venture into scripted programming.

The rapper, record producer, actor and entrepreneur is teaming with ABC to develop a comedy based on the real-life events of his former assistant Sarah Snedeker, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Single-camera comedy The Hustle, which has received a script commitment with a penalty attached, is inspired by the real-life events of Combs’ right-hand woman, Snedeker — now an exec at his Revolt Films Banner. It centers on a small-town girl who lands a job working as an assistant to a street-educated billionaire business mogul where she is instantly thrown into a foreign world of extravagance, debauchery and adventure.

Jeremy Garelick (The Wedding Ringer) is set to pen the script alongside Stacey Harman (ABC’s The Goldbergs), with the former attached to direct should the comedy move to pilot. Garelick, Harman and Combs will all exec produce. Snedeker is set to serve as producer and consultant on the comedy.

The Hustle comes as broadcast networks are looking for new spins on family comedies with distinctive voices and dynamics that aren’t already being explored on the small screen.

The comedy marks Combs’ first scripted TV foray. He’s repped by CAA. Garelick and Harman are both with UTA.
