Justin Bieber's early life may become the inspiration for a new television sitcom.

According the Hollywood Reporter, "The untitled comedy is described as a family show inspired by Bieber's unconventional upbringing - he was raised by his mother and grandparents -and revolves around a teenage music prodigy like Justin."

Producers and writers have already been contracted for the project, which is being developed by ABC.
