ABC wants to make Justin Bieber's life into a sitcom

justin-bieber-nbc-special.jpgABC is reviving a plan to make a sitcom based on Justin Bieber's life.

The network first took a swing at the project last year, but then shelved it. The comedy is now back in development, with Bieber and his manager, Scooter Braun, as executive producers, TV Guide reports.

The untitled show would be a family comedy centering on a future pop star's "awkward teenage years" before he hits it big. Bieber was discovered at age 13 and had his first charting single at 15, so the show might take some creative license in depicting the on-screen character's struggles.

Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi ("Entourage") will write a pilot script and also serve as exec producers.
