Former Das Racist frontman Heems’ last album, Eat, Pray, Thug, has inspired a TV series of the same name that will be helmed by Fresh Off The Boat co-executive producer Sanjah Shah and star Utkarsh Ambudkar.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Heems will sign on as a co-producer for the the show, backed by 20th Century Fox. Much like Heems himself, the comedy series will follow a successful Indian-American rapper who lives with his parents in Queens.
