Rapper Snoop Dogg is eyeing a return to acting and wants to star in his own TV sitcom.

The 'Drop It Like It's Hot' hitmaker, who recently changed his moniker to Snoop Lion, has previously starred in a reality TV show about his private life, entitled 'Snoop Dogg's Father Hood'.

The singer also dabbled in comedy with a sketch show for MTV packed with celebrity cameos including Samuel L. Jackson and Hugh Hefner, but he admits he longs to star in a more family-friendly programme.

Snoop Dogg, or is that Snoop Lion?

He tells ET Online, "You know, I had a (sketch) show called 'Doggy Fizzle Televizzle', which was on MTV. I always wanted to figure out a way to do a great sitcom like a Good Times or What's Happening. You know, some things from the '70s that really had an effect on me as a kid."

When asked if he would consider doing something similar in the future, he replies, "Yeah! If it's written correctly and the role on there for me is appropriate for what I'm going through at the time and if I can bring a positive message - most definitely."
