Have you always felt that the Scooby-Doo cartoon series would have been better served by the incorporation of a murdered father character in lieu of the combative Scrappy-Doo? Time to test our your theory, weird kid: The Notorious B.I.G.'s teenage children are set to star in a new animated musical series called House of Wallace —and Biggie will appear as a ghost.
According to its press release, House of Wallace will follow the story of C.J. Wallace, 16, and T'yanna Wallace, 19, as they struggle to prevent their father's Brooklyn music studio from being replaced by "a cookie cutter 'entertainment factory.'"
In order to bring in money, the kids turn the studio into a "jingle house," where famous artists record commercial jingles for "some of the world's best-known brand names" by day. By night, the kids lay down tracks that honor the studio's "Notorious heritage."
A Biggie character will appear "in ethereal form to guide [the children] through the adversities they face," though not, evidently, away from crazy ideas like creating a cartoon featuring a ghost version of himself that tramps the earth to help his children record commercials.
Other proposed characters include "a hilarious and endearingly-affable staff of studio employees," plus famous musical guests. The press release promises a mix of original music and "re-imagined renditions of classics from the Wallace catalog." Like maybe a song about how Travelocity's rates are "Hypnotize"-ingly affordable.
The AP reports that the extended commercial for products TBD has yet to sign with a network, though a representative for Ossian Media told a reporter "a few serious networks are in discussion."
The Notorious B.I.G., né Christopher Wallace, was shot and killed in 1997.
