We can finally look forward to getting an inside look at the creation of the Starz hit series BMF, as the network has officially pressed go on a docuseries production that will follow the story behind the show, Deadline reports. The eight-episode docuseries is the brainchild of Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who serves as executive producer and creator behind the fan-favorite show that landed on Starz in late September of this year.
BMF, otherwise known as Black Mafia Family, is a scripted series starring Demetrius Flenory Jr. and Da’Vinchi. The show is based on the real-life story of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory (Flenory Jr.) and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory (Da’Vinchi), two brothers who started a drug distribution and money laundering operation in 1989 Detroit. Through the years, the duo would gain notoriety for their cocaine trafficking business which would eventually lead them to start their own music label as a way to funnel their illegal earnings all while signing big-name acts such as Young Jeezy and Fabolous. Truly keeping it all in the family, leading man Flenory Jr. is the real-life son of BMF leader Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory.
G-Unit Film and Television and Alex Gibney’s company, Jigsaw Productions, will produce the upcoming docuseries alongside executive producers Jackson and Shan Nicholson (Jerusalem: City of Faith and Fury). Nicholson will also join the limited series as showrunner and co-director alongside Chris Frierson (The King).
Of what fans can expect from the limited series, Jackson said, “The docuseries will offer an inside look at different perspectives from all of those involved, BMF — Blowing Money Fast.”
Adding to Jackson’s statement and speaking to the success of BMF, President and CEO of Starz, Jeffrey Hirsch said, “The success of BMF demonstrates a continued rise in fan demand and interest in the story of the Flenory brothers. We’re excited to dive deeper into the world of Black Mafia Family in this new project with Curtis, Shan and the teams at G-Unit and Jigsaw.”
Audiences have spoken of their love for the scripted series as BMF has averaged out at a whopping 6.5 million views per episode across all Starz platforms leading the series to already have an order for a second season. If you haven’t seen the first season or need to catch up, you still have time to do so before the season finale airs this weekend on Sunday, November 21. While there is no set date yet for the docuseries to hit screens, we will be keeping you in the know for all things BMF related.
