Rejoice, Barbz, For Your Queen Nicki Minaj Is Getting A TV Show About Her Life

Some great news here for fans of the quality television that ABC Family puts out and Nicki Minaj: she’s going to executive produce and appear in her own scripted show based on her life. What! When? Where? I would like to watch this immediately.

According to Deadline, the show will film its first episode in Minaj’s hometown, Saint James, Trinidad and Tobago, and will focus on Minaj’s life growing up in Queens in the ’90s, as well as her “vibrant immigrant family” and her rise to superstardom.

I have high hopes for this, though that might be foolishly optimistic. Television shows about the life of a real, breathing, still-alive person, with said person attached can be very good, but they can also be very … not good. Let’s hope that this thing is a fucking hit. [Deadline]
