Showtime has struck a deal with legendary singer, Billy Joel to turn his life story into a drama called Big Shot.

Will and Grace's Sean Hayes and Joel will executive produce the one-hour drama that picks up during the pop icon's early years, reports Variety. Paul Chart (The Children of Men) will write the pilot script.

Big Shot will detail Joel's turbulent journey through the music biz with the first season likely taking place in the mid-1970s. It will also follow his first marriage to his then-business manager Elizabeth Weber.

Big Shot will premiere in the fall.
