Snoop Dogg To Star In New ESPN Mini-Series About His Son's Football Career
With his Snoop Youth Football League still growing and churning out new college and pro prospects every year, Snoop Dogg will star in a new reality-based miniseries about his son Cordell Broadus and his high-school football team the Bishop Gorman High School Gaels.
Snoop's son, a six-foot-two star wide receiver for the team, is currently being recruited by a handful of college football programs and has offers out from the likes of Arizona State, Baylor, Duke, LSU, and more. The new show, titled Snoop & Son: A Dad's Dream, chronicles the rapper and his son's life in football in a half-hour format and will air for four Wednesday nights in a row at 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN beginning on January 14. A final episode of the miniseries will air separately in mid-February.
In the show's recently released promo, Snoop speaks about his relationship with his son as one based on friendship.
"I'm more of a friend than I am a father," Snoop says. "A father to me is someone disciplinary who you really scared of. It's fear and respect. It's more just love with me."
Speaking about the show in a separate statement, Snoop touched on the opportunity to share a different side of himself with the world.
"I've been known for my work in many industries, but what I am most proud of is my beautiful family," he said, according to the Indie Wire Blog. "My son is an extremely talented athlete and my wife and I will be by his side wherever he chooses to play. I'm looking forward to the world watching me go through this journey with my family,".
