Timbaland To Turn Album 'Opera Noir' Into TV Musical


For the past two seasons on “Empire,” Timbaland has been the man behind the music — now, he’s going to be making his own musical.
The producer has struck a deal with Leftfield Pictures to develop his upcoming album “Opera Noir” (w/t) into a musical.
“Opera Noir” will be a scripted hip-hop musical based on and scored by his upcoming autobiographical and final album of the same title. The plan is to shop it to networks
as an event special in a variety of potential formats, from a standalone special (given the recent
success of Fox’s “Grease Live!”) to a limited series.
“I couldn’t have found a better partner than Leftfield Pictures and David George for
‘Opera Noir,'” said Timbaland (aka Tim Mosley). “They understand my vision for this project, which I’ve had for years, and I’m confident they will help bring this to life for everyone to see.”

“Opera Noir” will follow a young musician’s rise to the top and hardships along the
way, including struggles with poverty, substance abuse and crime.
“Tim’s unbelievable candor about his experiences and difficult past help illustrate one of the most epic success stories in the industry,” said David George, CEO of Leftfield Entertainment. “We’re fortunate to be part of the ‘grand finale’ of an artist whose innovative and inspiring musical contributions have helped shape the business and
will influence artists for years to come.”
Timbaland serves as executive producer on the project. David George, Adam Sher
and Will Nothacker executive produce for Leftfield. Jared Gutstadt, President of Jingle
Punks, also serves as executive producer.
