In a story from Variety, they say that "Ice Cube is set to write and executive produce an hourlong buddy cop comedy for NBC. Universal Media Studios is behind the untitled project, as is Cube's Cube Vision shingle."

In addition to "Cube, Matt Alvarez who runs the production company with him is set to executive produce."

According to "NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios chairman Ben Silverman... he had been aggressively pursuing Cube to create an action comedy for the Peacock."

"As we continue to expand our roster of diverse talent both on-camera and behind the camera, a guy like Ice Cube, who's multitalented, is someone we really wanted to be in business with," Silverman stated. "He's had an amazing career, to have gone from NWA to this."

Currently, "Cube is not attached to star in the project, but NBC execs are keeping their fingers crossed that the hip-hop star, actor and writer will make some appearances, perhaps even in the pilot. There's always the possibility he'll lend his music skills to the show's opening credits."

"We really want to capture his voice and his eye for talent, and his producing acumen," Silverman went on to say. "If he appeared in the pilot or series, we'd be really excited about that."
