When Usher said he was “just getting started” after his 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, he meant it.

Just days after he took the stage at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas Sunday (Feb. 11), the 45-year-old superstar has now announced plans to develop a television drama series centered around his music.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show will be produced in partnership with Universal Studio Group’s UCP and will center around “Black love in Atlanta and individuals looking to find a place to call home,” according to its logline, as reported by the outlet. “The series will explore music, style, sex, romance and secrets that threaten to tear relationships apart.”

Usher’s team on the project will include executive producers Selwyn Seyfu Hinds, Katie Zucker and Kenny Meiselas.

“My 30-year catalog has resonated with so many people no matter where they were in their lives,” he said in a statement. “I’m happy to be working with UCP to bring the music to life. I hope the series resonates with you the way my music continues to.”

The news comes on the heels of the eight-time Grammy winner’s new album Coming Home, which dropped Feb. 9. The 20-track LP features guest spots from BTS’ Jung Kook, Burna Boy, H.E.R. and more, and will likely compete with Kanye West’s Vultures for the top spot on the Billboard 200 next week.

On a more personal front, Usher recently married his longtime partner Jennifer Goicoechea. The pair wed in an intimate ceremony at a Las Vegas chapel on Sunday, just hours before the “Yeah!” singer headlined the Super Bowl Halftime Show with guest performers Alicia Keys, Ludacris, Lil Jon and Will.I.Am.
