Los Angeles-based prodco Kingdom Reign Entertainment has partnered with three-time Grammy nominee and controversial rapper DMX on a forthcoming docuseries.
Produced by Kingdom Reign through its deal with ITV America, the tentatively titled In the Dog House will follow the 46-year-old rapper, born Earl Simmons, as he attempts to rebuild his life following an inpatient treatment program for substance abuse. The series will also follow X into the studio as he works on his new album and attempts to repair his relationship with his 15 children and their respective mothers.
In the Dog House will be taken to market later this month.
Kingdom Reign’s Carlos King will executive produce the series alongside DMX.
“Although DMX has been a lightning rod of controversy, he’s one of the greatest performers in all of music,” said King in a statement. “We’re thrilled to take this ride with him and look forward to helping him tell his story that we feel viewers will be intrigued by and startled to see.”
Earlier this year the Billboard chart-topping artist, who has sold more than 74 million albums worldwide, was hit with 14 tax fraud related counts relating to $1.7 million dollars of allegedly unpaid taxes dating back to 2000. He was sentenced to house arrest after failing four drug tests before entering into a drug rehabilitation center.
If found guilty of all 14 counts, the rapper could face up to 44 years in prison.
