NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Ne-Yo has written many hit songs — and now he’s taking writing to a new level.
The Grammy winner told The Associated Press in an interview Friday that he closed a deal with Cartoon Network to produce his own show.
The cartoon is called “I Heart Tuesdays” and Ne-Yo said production starts soon.
He said the show is about “a 16-year-old girl that inherits the curse of her bloodline and she’s forced to save the world from the unknown evil every Tuesday for the rest of her life.”
A message seeking comment from the network was not immediately returned.
Ne-Yo said he created the show “for his sister.”
The platinum-selling singer-songwriter also says he’s putting together a line of hats.
Ne-Yo stars in the new film “Battle: LA,” in theaters Friday. He had his first child in November. His latest CD, “Libra Scale,” was also released in November.
