Nearly 20 years after Biggie Smalls's infamous death, the rapper's story will continue on the small screen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, TBS is developing a half-hour comedy titled Think B.I.G., after one of the late artist’s unreleased songs from 1995.

A collaboration between Bystorm Films and the rapper's mother, Voletta Wallace, the new series will follow an inner-city teen who is trying to build a better life and future for his young daughter and infant son. Each episode will be loosely based on lyrics from Notorious B.I.G. (born Christopher Wallace).

No word on when Think B.I.G. will premiere.
