LL Cool J will star as an undercover Los Angeles Police Department officer in an upcoming television drama being produced titled The Man.

The rapper/actor partnered with CSI creator/writer Anthony Zuiker to produce the series, which is the first project under a seven-figure deal LL Cool J struck with television network CBS, in July.

The show revolves around LL's character, a smooth talking undercover hustler in Los Angeles, who is known for his ability to get almost anything accomplished on the streets.

His character works the nightshift attempting to break criminal rings, while raising three adopted children during the day. All three of the children pose a challenge during the show.

One boy is a recovering drug addict, the other was abused and now has an aggression problem and the third girl is a former streetwalker, who is now in community college.

The Man marks LL Cool J's return as a television star since the television series In The House, which aired on NBC and later, UPN.

Zuiker will serve as executive producer of the project, while LL Cool J and Alchemy Entertainment's Jason Barrett will produce the series.
