Alicia Keys’ Early Years To Be Made Into A TV Series    ·    January 13th, 2006

Everybody hates Chris, but everybody loves Alicia — at least, that’s what UPN hopes. The channel just signed a development deal with Alicia Keys to create a show based on her childhood, as it did with comedian Chris Rock for the hit sitcom “Everybody Hates Chris.”

Keys’ show wouldn’t be a comedy, but rather an hour-long drama, according to UPN. The project would be loosely based on Keys growing up in a multiracial family (her mother is Irish-Italian, and her father is Jamaican).

UPN hasn’t pinpointed which stage in Keys’ young life the show will focus on, nor does the network have an actress in mind to play her. The script is being written by Felicia Henderson (”Soul Food,” “Moesha,” “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”), who will executive produce along with Keys and her manager, Jeff Robinson. There’s no timetable to shoot the pilot, UPN said, though it’s possible it could be ready by next season.
