Nick Cannon promises his new show about the Bay Area will be dripping in authenticity ’cause he’s got local legends, E-40 and Too $hort, as producers.
Nick tells TMZ he’s excited about his drama crime series, The Yay Area, because it’s going to chronicle NorCal’s drug culture, and its connection to Silicon Valley, biker gangs and even the Black Panthers.
Nick’s thinking The Wire meets The Sopranos — and with Short and 40 involved, he thinks things will move quickly. We’re told several networks are interested, and Nick’s sinking tons of his own dough into it.
As was reported, he plans to start shooting the series this Fall. Until then, Nick’s so busy with so many other gigs … we can tell, he needs a nap.
