Here's a holiday gift for all you Bieber fans out there: ABC is in the process of developing a new comedy sitcom based on Justin Bieber's early teenage years. The show had been in the works since last year, but is now being considered for the network's next season. 

According to TV Guide, the sitcom will be about "a future pop star's awkward teenage years and his unorthodox family." Though the show's title and cast have yet to be revealed, the storyline is set to be centered on Bieber's life before all the Hollywood glitz and fame. 

Justin Bieber, along with his manager Scooter Braun, are taking on the role of executive producer for the new ABC comedy. Matt Wolpert and Ben Nediv, script writers of the popular show "Entourage," will also be contributing to the production of the developing series.

Get excited Bieber fans, the new sitcom just might find its way to your TV screen in the near future!
