EXCLUSIVE: In what would be his first TV starring vehicle, Ice Cube is
set to topline and executive produce Eye For An Eye, a drama series

company Cube Vision and Jeff Kwatinetz’s Prospect Park, which
developed the idea together. Eye For An Eye centers on a complex man,
played by Ice Cube, who is a veteran paramedic. After too many years
of leaving the scenes of violent crimes with a victim struggling to
live in the back of his ambulance, he snaps and starts going eye for
an eye. When his thirst for revenge proves addictive, his personal
life spirals out of control as he tries to reconcile it with his
newfound life as a vigilante. Cube and his Cube Vision partner Matt
Alvarez are executive producing with Kwatinetz and Prospect Park’s TV
partner Josh Barry. A search is underway for a writer to pen the
script. In TV, Ice Cube is executive producing the TBS sitcom Are We
There Yet? based on his 2005 movie. UTA-repped Ice Cube recurs on the
series, which has a 100-episode order. On the film side, he is working
with New Line on a new installment in his hit Friday franchise. He
next stars in Rampart and 21 Jump Street. Both Ice Cube and Prospect
Park have a relationship at FX: Ice Cube executive produced the

breakout comedy Wilfred. Prospect Park also has comedy GILF, from
