Grammy-Award winning singer Bruno Mars has inked a deal with NBC to produce a family comedy pilot.

The proposed series, whose pilot is being written by Prentice Penny of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Happy Endings” fame, centres on a boisterous musical family in the Bronx that takes in their wide-eyed 10-year-old relative, reported Entertainment Weekly.

“Empire” executive producer/Imagine co-founder Brian Grazer is among the executive producers on the single-camera project.

Mars’ music is likely to be used in some capacity on the series.

The 30-year-old “Just the way you are” hitmaker is not the only music star to score a TV production deal in recent weeks.

Earlier, ABC Family announced Nicki Minaj will executive produce and appear in a family comedy based on her life.

While rapper Pitbull is executive producing “305”, a one-hour Miami drama for Fox.
