Nicki Minaj is just full of surprises, isn’t she?
The Pinkprint artist announced she will executive produce and appear in a new scripted series set to air on ABC Family based on her life growing up in Queens. According to Deadline, a pilot will be shot this winter in New York, with hopes to continue shooting the entire series.
Written by Kate Angelo, the series will zero in on Nicki’s childhood during the 90s, her vibrant West Indian family and her love for music, which led to her future success.
Nicki announced she’s launching a nationwide search to find the actress to play her younger self, and will be a part of the entire creative process, even down to young Nick’s early rhymes.
