ABC Family is Making a Comedy Inspired by Nicki Minaj’s Life
The network has already given the show — based on her family’s immigration to the United States in the 90s — a series commitment.
“Nicki Minaj is a force to be reckoned with at everything she touches,” explained ABC Family’s EVP of Programming and Development Karey Burke. “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.”
Added Nicki of the project, “This is one of the more unique adventures I’ve ever embarked on. I couldn’t be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”
The comedy will shoot a pilot this winter in Minaj’s childhood stomping grounds: Queens, New York.
