Alicia Keys has a new project in the pipeline.
The singer is creating an original series based on an improv show called Take It Personal, a production run by comedian Cipha Sounds at the UCB Theater in New York. Although the project has yet to find a network home, the funnyman spilled details on how Alicia got involved.
“We get a hip-hop celebrity to tell a story and then we create a whole show based on that story, all made up on the spot. So Swizz [Beatz] did it and he loved it,” Cipha tells XXL magazine. “He said his wife would love it, because it’s theater-based and acting. So we’re partners with it and we’re just trying to get it to go through.”
Keys and Cipha are working on the pilot with producer Ian Gelfand.
