GZA and his publicist create TV show called Igotchaback for FX

Following (sorta, but not really) in the tradition of The Odd Couple, Twins, and My Blue Heaven, a new show called Igotchaback (tentatively titled) is set to feature the crazy antics of another interesting relationship: a rapper and his manager.

The show, recently purchased by FX, is expected to be a half-hour, single-camera fictional comedy about an aging rap star’s relationship with his music industry manager. GZA (of Wu-Tang fame, of course) and his publicist Heathcliff Berru (Life or Death PR & Management) have been developing the show for the last couple years with actor David Krumholtz (of Harold & Kumar, Numb3rs, and upcoming new show Playboy). No word yet on who will play these fictional characters, but the show is expected to pull from Berru’s personal experiences in the industry. It will also feature music that goes beyond hip-hop, including artists like Odd Future and Little Dragon, according to Berru.

So when does it air? Well, keep your fingers crossed, your minds open, and your eyes on the prize and you might just see something sooner rather than later. In other words, we have no fucking clue since it’s not an “official” show yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear something.
