Samuel L. Jackson and his wife LaTanya Richardson are teaming with FreemantleMedia for a new unscripted series in which they follow celebrities back to their childhood homes, according to EW.

The as-yet-untitled show will feature celebrities showing off their hometowns, discussing how their childhoods helped form who they are today.

“LaTanya and I often talk about the nostalgia we have for the community in which we were raised, and the opportunity we have to pay it forward,” Jackson told Variety. “This is about connecting with the community where we became the people we are today and sharing that journey with audiences across America.”

Jackson himself was born in Washington, D.C., but grew up predominantly in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and LaTanya was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia.

No word if Jackson will host the show or appear on camera. Also, the series has yet to secure a network.
