LL Cool J will star as an undercover Los Angeles Police Department officer in an upcoming

television drama being produced titled The Man. The

rapper/actor partnered with CSI creator/writer Anthony Zuiker to produce the series,

which is the first project under a seven-figure deal LL Cool J struck with television

network CBS, in July.The

show revolves around LL's character, a smooth talking undercover hustler in Los

Angeles, who is known for his ability to get almost anything accomplished on the

streets. His

character works the nightshift attempting to break criminal rings, while raising

three adopted children during the day. All three of the children pose a challenge

during the show. One

boy is a recovering drug addict, the other was abused and now has an aggression

problem and the third girl is a former streetwalker, who is now in community college.


Man marks LL Cool J's return as a television star since the television series

In The House, which aired on NBC and later, UPN. Zuiker

will serve as executive producer of the project, while LL Cool J and Alchemy Entertainment's

Jason Barrett will produce the series.
