Keys & manager Jeff Robinson, said Thursday they have formed a company whose first project will be a UPN TV series inspired by Keys' experiences
Has scored great with her music career, Alicia Keys still is wanting some more. The singer has just signed a development deal with UPN channel to create her own TV show, which is based on her childhood experiences as a biracial youngster growing in New York.
The project reportedly will be an hour-long drama loosely based on Keys growing up in a multiracial family, as her mother is Irish-Italian, and her father is Jamaican. Though, it has yet confirmed which stage in Keys' young life the show will focus on, nor does the network have an actress in mind to play her.
In the meantime, it is said that the script is being written by Felicia Henderson, who will also executive produce along with Keys and her manager, Jeff Robinson. Release date on the show remains undisclosed, but it could be ready by next season.
