According to Variety, Lions Gate has decided it can relate to "Notorious D.A.D.," buying the family comedy pitch from writers Bear Aderhold and Tom Sullivan and setting it up with Carl Beverly, Eric Tannenbaum and Jonathan Prince to produce.

The story concerns a superstar rapper who loses everything and is forced to take a job as a nanny for his accountant's kids while trying to resurrect his music career.

The writing duo have also worked on such TV skeins as "The Man Show" and "Crank Yankers." They also recently closed a deal with Parallel Entertainment for comedy pitch "Delta Farce," described as Stripes meets The Three Amigos.
