The project, which will see the rapper-turned-actor play a father, has received a script commitment from the network, according to Deadline.
The family comedy will be written by Don Reo, who has previously worked on such shows as M*A*S*H, Everybody Hates Chris and Two and a Half Men.
Reo will also executive produce, while Snoop Dogg and Ted Chung will serve as producers. Reo previously worked with Snoop Dogg - real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr - on the short-lived Fox sitcom Brothers.
Snoop Dogg recently signed up to play blues singer and guitarist Fillmore Slim in movie biopic The Legend of Fillmore Slim.
His other acting credits include roles in 2001's Training Day and 2004's Starsky & Hutch.
Other comedy projects currently in development at NBC include hip-hop comedy Mixed Blessings from musician John Legend, a sitcom from Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, a karaoke-themed series from Maroon 5 singer and The Voice judge Adam Levine, and a new show from Will & Grace star Sean Hayes.
