Master P Sets Sights On TV

Now that he has a bit more free time on his hands after taking a run at the NBA, Master P is turning to television.

The rapper/No Limit CEO, who has also acted in his own films, will appear on an episode of the UPN sitcom "Malcolm and Eddie" that airs on March 2.

P is also in talk with MTV to executive produce and star in a half-hour series about a former boot camp officer who takes over a juvenile detention center and tries to save it from being shut down while rehabilitating its troubled youth.

The as-yet-untitled show is expected to make it onto the airwaves by next January via MTV and Master P's No Limit Filmworks.
