It looks like new music isn’t the only thing John Legend has coming out in 2013. According to, John Legend is set to produce a new HBO series called Down Lo, along with producer-director Tony Krantz.

Set in Miami’s South Beach, the edgy ensemble drama explores the intersection of three worlds — the party town’s popular music scene and sports and fashion circles. It deals with fame and secrets, with the stories told from multiple points of view. One of them will be that of a gay rapper living on the down low as homosexuality is still not readily accepted in the hip-hop community.

Down Lo is expected to draw on Legend’s first-hand knowledge and great access to the music world.

Well…we’ll definitely be watching.
