A reality comedy about the unexpected side of Snoop.
10 half-hour episodes premiere Sunday, December 9.
As a mega-successful recording artist, producer and actor, Snoop Dogg has carved out a permanent place in pop culture and musical history as hip hop's ultimate wordsmith and most compelling superstar. However, there is much more to the Dogg Father than meets the eye…there is a side to Snoop that no one has ever seen before: fatherhood. Beneath that smooth exterior, he is a family man facing the challenges of raising three lively kids, balancing a multi-faceted career, and continuing his role as an ardent advocate of sometimes controversial community causes.
In this hilarious and heartwarming new reality series, E! takes viewers inside the everyday life of Calvin Broadus to reveal what really makes Snoop Dogg tick.
The Snoop we see in all of the sexy music videos is not the one we find at home with his family. Most people have no idea that he’s married to his high school sweetheart, Shanté, aka Boss Lady. And Shanté is the Boss Lady for a reason…she is a strong-willed matriarch and takes pride in her role as the glue that keeps it all together. She manages the business of all things family as Snoop continues to forge a unique career path with eight Platinum-selling albums under his belt, along with numerous films, books, and even clothing that continue to lure fans.
Snoop and Shanté have spent the last 13 years raising their three lovable children: Cordé, Cordell, and daughter Cori, all of whom have undeniably inherited their parents’ colorful spirit and charm while still being everyday kids dealing with the same issues all tweens and teens face today…and of course finding their way into some healthy and expected mischief. Then there’s Anthony, the son of Snoop’s hair-braider, Tasha. Anthony showed up at Snoop’s house one day 10 years ago and never left. He’s been “adopted” and welcomed by the family, who now refer to this hilarious, animated 20 year old as their oldest son.
Snoop’s extended family is filled with a colorful cast of characters, including Uncle June Bugg, a smooth-talking, Hennessey-drinking, professional dancer and romancer; or Uncle Reo, the leopard-print leather pantsuit wearing chef of the family; Kevin, the white hip-hop head and one of Snoop’s many wranglers and managers; or Big Keyes, one of three bodyguards bigger than a grizzly bear with the heart of a teddy bear and the voice of Mickey Mouse. This clan is vibrant, animated and always united.
Whether he is chasing after the kids to clean the house, taking yoga classes in a quest to relieve stress, figuring out how to talk to his oldest son about dating while on the set of his latest music video, or on a mission to find some decent chicken wings in Germany, Snoop’s life is never dull as he strives for balance between family and career. His magnetic sense of humor is always sure to entertain, as he often breaks the fourth wall and talks directly to the viewer.
This lovable family always promises to serve up their fair share of calamity: with Cordell’s plots to hustle cash, Cordé’s life as a modern teenager, Cori’s dreams of becoming a superstar, and Anthony's haphazard and hysterical attempts to keep order between all of them. You never know what’s going to go down in a day in the life of this clan…some days you wake up and jump on private jet, and other days you gotta buckle down and do your homework. For the first time, you’ll get a ringside seat as Snoop pursues his version of the American Dream. You'll laugh, you'll be touched, and then you'll chill...till the next episode.
