Nicki Minaj has conquered music. She's appeared on the big screen. And, now, she's coming to TV.
On Tuesday (Sept. 29), ABC Family announced a new half-hour comedy series based on Nicki and her family's immigration from Trinidad to the U.S. in the early 1990s, and her growing up in Queens. She'll also appear in the series, and serve as an executive producer.
“This is one of the more unique adventures I've ever embarked on,” she said in a release. “I couldn't be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”
“Nicki Minaj is a force to be reckoned with at everything she touches,” Karey Burke, Executive Vice President of Programming and Development at ABC Family, said. “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.”
Fans, of course, were thrilled with the news.
The show, which is currently untitled, is set to begin filming this winter in Queens.
