The script is said to be "an uncensored" look at singer Lou Rawls by his son Lou Rawls Jr. Isaiah Washington will be playing the singer.

Hailing from Chicago and born in 1933, Rawls sang blues, soul, funk and R&B. He sold tons of records and was very much respected by Frank Sinatra. Rawls grew up in poverty and had problems when he married.

Writers on the script were Robert Egan and Dimi Sloane along with Rawls Jr..

According to Egan, "We're showing the real story -- what he was doing to his wife before walking out onstage and wooing the audience with a big smile."
