Teen rapper Bow Wow is taking a second shot at starring in his own sitcom, after landing a deal for a new show.

The show will feature the 18-year-old star playing a version of himself, a hip-hop artist who's coming of age and taking charge of his business.

Bow Wow, real name SHAD GREGORY MOSS, last starred in the failed 2003 comedy pilot SAVING JASON, about a gifted pianist who is suddenly out of his depth when he enrols at an elite boarding school.
