When you think of Xbox, you likely think of Grand Theft Auto or Splinter Cell or Halo. You probably don’t think about Xbox Entertainment Studios, which was launched in 2012 for the express purpose of developing original content to be viewed on your television. Its latest endeavor is a comedy series called Street Dreams. Loosely based on the life of hip-hop legend Nas, who will be involved with the script and music. It will be “set in the 1990s in Long Island’s Queensbridge housing complex, where Nas grew up, and takes a look at music, family and the trials and tribulations of the rap game,” according to Deadline. No word yet on casting.
