The producers are currently looking for a writer to tackle the pilot script. The series will reportedly be centered around Kiedis' relationship with his father, John, who was allegedly a drug dealer for acts like the Who and Led Zeppelin under his stage name, Blackie Dammett. The show will kick off with Kiedis moving from Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he lived with his mother, to Los Angeles to join his dad.Kiedis told Variety about his father, "He introduced me to the arts, to a more culturally magnificent life. But some of it was this heavy, adult matter that I wasn't quite capable of digesting... It was a very rich but kind of challenging period of my life. I was thrust into this adult mentality by age 11."
The show will take place in the West Hollywood and Los Angeles of the early Seventies. Kiedis plans to be heavily involved with the show and has been gathering memories of their life together from his father, who now lives in Portland, Oregon. Kiedis may also make cameos in the show or possibly narrate it.
