Adam Levine is expanding his wings on television industry by taking a behind-the-scenes role after appearing on numerous TV shows. The rocker is currently developing a comedy series inspired by his real-life experiences for NBC.

Titled "Kids in America", the single-camera comedy has received a script commitment. The project is part of a first-look deal that Levine and his manager Jordan Feldstein signed with NBC in May 2013.

The potential new series centers on a teenager at the center of an unconventional family who has aspirations of becoming a rock star. Aaron Blitzstein ("Family Guy") is tapped to write the script and is set to serve as executive producer along with Levine, Feldstein and development executive Josh Gummersall.

NBC has previously picked two other comedy projects inspired by the Maroon 5 frontman's real-life experiences. One is based on his friendship with writer-producer Gene Hong and the other is about the two's experience at a karaoke bar.

The coach of "The Voice" has also shown his acting chops when he played Jenna Dewan's on-screen husband on FX's "American Horror Story: Asylum", the second installment of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's anthology series.
