TORONTO -- The story of Justin Bieber's early years could soon be hitting TV screens.
TV Guide and ABC News say ABC is developing a sitcom based on the pop superstar's life.
The single-camera comedy would centre on Bieber's time before he got famous --and include a look at his awkward teenage years and unorthodox family.
According to one report, Bieber would executive produce the show with his manager, Scooter Braun.
The series is reportedly being considered for broadcast next season. An ABC spokesperson did not immediately respond to request for comment.
