Titled A.K.A. Snoop, the potential series would delve into the hardship Pearson endured growing up in Baltimore, reports Variety. The potential series, from Moondog Films, will be shopped to networks and streamers. Burns is co-writing A.K.A. Snoop with Pearson, who played the semi-fictional Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, a soldier in Marlo Stanfield's drug dealing organization. Burns is a former Baltimore Police detective who collaborated with The Wire creator David Simon on The Corner, The Wire and, most recently, The Plot Against America, which Burns co-created. "Born three months premature to a crack addicted mother, Pearson was given little chance of survival at birth," says Variety's Joe Otterson. "She ultimately grew up as a gay Black woman in a foster home in a neighborhood plagued by drugs and violence. She dealt drugs as a teenager before being convicted of second degree murder and spending over six years in prison. After her release, she met The Wire star Michael K. Williams, who brought her to the set. She was subsequently written into the show, with her character sharing her name — Felicia 'Snoop' Pearson. On the show, Snoop was a feared enforcer for Marlo Stanfield who carried out numerous murders."
