U.S. net ESPN is to show a different side of rapper Snoop Dogg (pictured) in its forthcoming, five-part docuseries Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream, which will follow the singer’s relationship with his teenage son.

Set to premiere on January 14 at 7 p.m. EST/PST, the series will focus on Snoop Dogg and his 17-year-old, football player son Cordell Broadus as they navigate their relationship despite busy schedules. The show is to go behind-the-scenes at everything from family dinners to Snoop Dogg’s tour bus, and will focus on how Snoop helps Cordell through his senior season.

Snoop & Son: A Dad’s Dream is produced by First Row Films, with Rory Karpf serving as executive producer.

“People will see a very different side of Snoop,” said Karpf, in a statement. “They’ll see a man navigating the line between father and friend. They’ll see someone whose interest in his son’s life reflects what he himself never had. Above all, they’ll see a father extraordinarily proud of his son.”

Snoop Dogg added: “I’ve been known for my work in many industries, but what I am most proud of is my beautiful family. My son is an extremely talented athlete and my wife and I will be by his side wherever he chooses to play. I’m looking forward to the world watching me go through this journey with my family.”
