After appearing on Showtime’s House of Lies and VH1’s The Breaks, T.I. is set to star in a new drama on network television.

Fox picked up the police procedural Atlanta’s Most Wanted.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, T.I. teamed with veteran film/TV producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Bad Boys, Pirates of the Caribbean) for the series.

“I am honored to partner with Fox and Bruckheimer on what is truly a passion project for me. It’s going to be amazing to see my city represented in this fashion,” stated Tip.

The rapper-turned-actor will play a character named Marcus Armstrong who is the son of an Atlanta criminal kingpin.
