ABC is developing a sitcom based on Justin Bieber's life.

The US network is collaborating with the 'Baby' hitmaker on the project which will focus on his life before be became famous with Justin, 18, and his manager Scooter Braun acting as producers, according to TVguide.com.

Executive producers Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi - who have worked on 'Entourage' - are writing the script which will portray a future pop star's awkward teenage years among his unorthodox family.

Justin recently claimed being snubbed at the Grammy Awards is a ''big bummer''.

The pop star was unhappy his album 'Believe' didn't earn him a single nomination and was shocked he didn't make the cut despite the record's commercial success.

He said: ''I was looking forward to [a possible Grammy nomination], but I know it will happen one day. I'm so young, I'm only 18. I'm just blessed to be able to do what I love every day. And the American Music Awards was a lot of fun for me so ... Hopefully, one day.''
