R&B hitmaker Brian McKnight, whose song "Thinkin' 'Bout Me" is on the soundtrack to "The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps," is branching out further into the world of movie and TV music.

McKnight recently produced new tracks for the ABC drama "City of Angels," which stars Blair Underwood and Vivica A. Fox. McKnight's contribution to the show should turn up on-air next season.

Meanwhile, he is also working on music for an upcoming project from actor/producer Robert De Niro.

McKnight also said he is producing songs for Motown Records labelmates 98° and country star LeAnn Rimes. The R&B star, whose most recent single is "6, 8, 12" (RealAudio excerpt), from Back at One, said he has eclectic taste in music and lately has been listening to everything from fellow R&B singer Joe to rockers Blink-182.
