Nicki Minaj is getting her own TV show! ABC Family announced on September 29 that the rapper will be producing an autobiographical series about her life growing up in Queens. The executive vice president of programming and development for ABC Family, Karey Burke stated, “…not everyone knows how inspiring and hilarious her true story is, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”
No casting has been announced as of yet, but Minaj is currently on the lookout for Young Nicki.
Fans were quick to suggest their picks including Hunger Games actress, Amandla Stenberg and Disney star, Zendaya. An added bonus to getting the role? Minaj will be writing her own raps for Young Nicki to spit on the show. Talk about a Barbz dream come true!
The comedy (which has yet to be named) will begin shooting in Queens this winter.
