According to Deadline, the musician will play the lead in Michael Bolton's Daughter Is Destroying My Life.
The half-hour comedy, based on an idea by Go On actress Allison Miller, is apparently inspired by her experiences with celebrities when she first came to Hollywood.
Bolton will reportedly play a fictional version of himself in the series, which will focus on a young writer who becomes the social media director for the Grammy-winning singer.
30 Rock writer Tami Sagher has signed on to pen the series, and will also form part of a team of executive producers which also includes Bolton.
It is unlikely that Miller will act in the project, but she is tipped to produce.
Bolton has some previous acting experience, including guest spots on Two and a Half Men and Saturday Night Live.
