NICKI MINAJ GETS SCRIPTED
Get this. It was announced yesterday that ABC Family ordered a scripted comedy based on a family’s immigration from Trinidad. Seems promising enough. Oh I forgot to mention this comedy is based on Nicki Minajs’ family.
Like “Everybody Hates Chris”, this half-hour comedy well take please in the past, the 90s to be exact. The concept is simple enough, Young Minaj growing up in queens with her wild and crazy family.
Karey Burke, Executive Vice President of Programming and Development at ABC Family says, “We’re beyond thrilled to bring her one-of-a-kind story to our channel. Nicki is an international superstar, yet not everyone knows how inspiring and hilarious her true story is, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”
“This is one of the more unique adventures I’ve ever embarked on,” said Minaj. “I couldn’t be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”
Unlike most rappers turned actors, Nicki actually attended a performance arts high school where she indeed studied Theatre. Also we all are familiar with the multiple personalities that inhabits Nicki’s mind and/or ass from Harajuku Barbie to Nicki Lewinsky. But does have what it takes to make it on the small screen? I guess we will see.
