Los Angeles: Chances are pretty good that Snoop Dogg is firing up a celebratory hit on his, uh, water pipe right now.

The ‘Doggystyle’ rapper has sold a comedy project to NBC, which he will produce and star in.

The as-yet-untitled project is described as a "multi-camera family comedy," with Don Reo -- whose credits include ‘Two and a Half Men,’ ‘Everybody Hates Chris,’ and ‘Til Death’ -- executive-producing and writing.

Frequent Snoop collaborator Ted Chung is also producing.

The rapper, born Calvin Broadus Jr., has experience with family-oriented programing with the reality series ‘Snoop Dogg`s Father Hood,’ which ran for two seasons on the E! channel.

The series is being produced by Warner Bros. Television.
