Mary J. Blige and 50 Cent have been tapped to executive produce ABC’s put pilot order for musical comedy described as “black-ish meets The Jackson 5,” Family Affair.

The show is written by husband-and-wife writer-producers Devon and Ranada Shepard and according to Deadline centers on “A-ron, a faded R&B star and committed bachelor whose life is thrown into a tailspin when he’s saddled with raising his sister’s four kids. A-ron is overwhelmed and underwater until he discovers that musical talent runs in the family. These kids can sing! With their sights set on success, A-ron’s about to learn that managing a music group might be hard, but raising four kids is even harder.”

The single-camera family comedy landed at ABC despite being pursued by multiple networks which resulted in a bidding war in the six-figure range.

Family Affair doesn’t mark the first time the two Grammy-winning artists have worked together. Blige currently stars in 50 Cent’s executive produced spinoff series, Power Book II: Ghost. The 45-year-old is also the executive producer for ABC’s drama series, For Life.

The Yonkers native most recently executive produced Lifetime’s The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel alongside Queen Latifah and Missy Elliott.
