People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive,’ John Legend, confirmed he is working on a sitcom based on his high school years. John has admitted to skipping ahead in school in his younger years and that left him in crazy situations. 

His life growing up was an adventure and he wishes to relive those moments. He told Extra, “I grew up in the church. I was skipped a couple of grades, so by the time I got to high school, my first public high school experience was as a 12 year old when most of my peers were 14.

John continued, “There’s a lot of comedy in my childhood, in my teenage years – so we’re gonna try and mine that for a sitcom.” 

His wife, Chrissy Teigan, is a hilarious influence on his life as well as his kids. He intends to use their touch of humor from his home life to television.

The show is currently being developed and John hopes that people enjoy it just as much as the crazy videos his wife puts up without him knowing.
