Chances are pretty good that Snoop Dogg is firing up a celebratory hit on his, uh, water pipe right now.

The Doggystyle rapper has sold a comedy project to NBC, which he will produce and star in, the network confirmed to TheWrap.

The as-yet-untitled project is described as a multi-camera family comedy, with Don Reo -- whose credits include Two and a Half Men, Everybody Hates Chris, and 'Til Death -- executive-producing and writing.

Frequent Snoop collaborator Ted Chung is also producing.

The rapper, born Calvin Broadus Jr., has experience with family-oriented programing with the reality series Snoop Dogg's Father Hood, which ran for two seasons on the E! channel.

The series is being produced by Warner Bros. Television.
