Snoop Dogg, ESPN Team for Documentary Series Following Performer’s Son

ESPN is set to air a five-part documentary style series, “Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream,” which will look at the entertainment icon Snoop Dogg’s journey with his football star son Cordell Broadus.

ESPN will premiere the series on Jan. 14, continuing for four consecutive Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. ET (reairing on ESPNU), with a fifth and final episode airing in mid-February.

Cordell, 17, is a standout student and prep player, and one of the most sought after recruits in the country, with top schools including Notre Dame and USC vying for him. Snoop is a constant presence in his football life.

“People will see a very different side of Snoop,” says Rory Karpf, who is executive producing through his shingle First Row Films. “They’ll see a man navigating the line between father and friend. They’ll see someone whose interest in his son’s life reflects what he himself never had. Above all, they’ll see a father extraordinarily proud of his son.”

Karpf (“The Book of Manning”) is repped by WME and Inphenate.
