tlc vh1 movie e1353972931752 VH1 Start Production On TLC Biopic

For the fortunate set who grew up during TLC‘s reign, it’s common-knowledge that the trio brought the drama both on and off the stage.

Naturally, then, a biopic centred on the lives of Tionne ‘T Boz’ Watkins, the late Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopez, and Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas, has been talked about for more than a decade.

Yet as the 10th year since Lopes’ passing draws to a close, fans will be elated to learn that the made-for-TV-movie has finally gone in to production – with the iconic group’s surviving members serving as “consultants and executive producers”.

Peep the press release below…

LOS ANGELES, CA – November 26th, 2012 – VH1 is casting the roles of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, for a full-length TV movie based on the celebrated pop/ hip hop/ R&B group TLC. With a script by acclaimed screenwriter Kate Lanier (“What’s Love Got To Do With It,” “Set it Off,” “Beauty Shop”), the untitled film is slated to begin shooting in early 2013.
TLC’s humble beginnings in Atlanta quickly led to an unprecedented rise to fame in the 1990’s as one of the world’s most talented, celebrated and highest-selling female groups of all time. Through very public and high-profile success, turmoil and tragedy, TLC left an indelible stamp of female empowerment that changed the face of the music industry forever.
The two surviving members of the group, Chilli and T-Boz, have signed on as consultants and executive producers for the movie. Executive producing the TLC bio-pic are Bill Diggins and Maggie Malina. Alexander Motlagh is executive producing for Pop Films.  Jeff Olde and Jill Holmes serve as executive producers for VH1.
 
***********
Granted every biopic brings with it fresh debate about what’s fact, what’s fairytale, and what’s  fallacy, we’re relatively amped for this. Having personally grown up during TLC’s rise, their story is one that future generations of music lovers should more than just know; it should be one they come to appreciate. For, without TLC, a host of today’s biggest artists may not have been here.
From a pure dramatics angles too, their story almost Shakespearian. Astronomical success, bankruptcy, burning down houses, in- fighting, illness, commercial redemption, and sadly death. Their narrative is epic. As such, this is one project we’ll be watching closely.

    Come on Sam, I know you wanna go there. Rita Ora stole the fast furious role over RIhanna. HA HA HA NOT TRUE. Rihanna was rumored to be up for the lead female role, but that went to Carla Garano, who was a gladiator. Rita ora filmed a f****** extra scene 2 daya ago. THE FILMED RAPPED YEASTERDAY. Rita ORA IS JUST a f****** EXTRA in the film and RIH HEADLINES MOVIES ( Whether they flop or not ) she is still A list in Hollywood and she does not need to play an extra.

    ONCE again Rita Or has to trash talk mega selling number 1 Rih. Keep your extra in fast furious LOL RIHANNA HAD TWO LEADING LADY MOVIE ROLE , PLUS, A NUMBER 1 GLOBAL ALBUM AND A SINGLE THAT HAS GONE IN 13 COUNTRIES.

    WHEN WILL YO FAVE? Kerruche Tran, Rita Ora, Beyonce, Kyle Devolle. All you haters know you cannot beat rihanna. my advice is that you kill yourself, cos she was born rule. I love how black white, asian, man, woman, old young. She has EVERYONE PRESSED. SHE IS THE BLACK MADONNA.

    No one is gonna watch her HBO about her life. Outside the black community, who gives a f*** about Beyonce life or music? White people are more obsessed with who Rih is dating over beyonce boring life with her ugly baby and ugly monkey hubby.

        “A American”? I think you mean “an” American and America =/= white as it is a diverse nation, hence its name “the melting pot” of the world. We all know you are Sybil and you are a black person so getittogether.com

        It is understandable, the original Sybil, named Shirley Ardell Mason, believed that she was multiple different people with different backgrounds, religion, social class, and ETHNICITY. So I guess you believe in being “white” is one of your personalities…..

    THe spice girls are the biggest GG; bigger than Destiny child. LOL But the spice girls cannot sing. HA HA HA this is the second time in her career, beyonce has been f***** up by vocally weaker singers. First the spice girls s*** on her legacy, and now you have Rihanna blowing out the game.

    Beyonce so called talent is not that great is it? Spice girls slayed her and now Rih is slaying her. Looks like the black girl is hurting her more.

    HA HA HA. Rihanna, take your page out of the spice girls. You do not need to ” talent ” to destroy Beyonce’s career. Spice girls all earned over $ 60 million dollars EACH more than those DC members. So f*** the whole ” better singer / talent ”.

    What shakes Beyonce wis when better, but vocally weaker singer slay her with ease. Aahaliyah was slaying beyoince with her eyes clothes and is she had not of died, Beyonce would be Brandy right now. TLC and the spice girls ( more vocally weaker, but better artist ) STILL TO THIS DAY f*** DESTINY CHILD UP.

    THEN WE HAVE RIH…………A vocally weak singer, who f**** beyonce over with her eyes clothes. All this so called talent and yet she could not stop JLO wack singer selling 50 million and famous woman in 2000 to 2003; Beyonce could the reign of JLO. So she copied her booty bling bling style. Beyonce could not stop Aahliyah; it was only death that stopped aahliyah. Beyonce could not stop the spice girls or even TLC. She cannot stop Rihanna. Beyonce talent scares NO ONE. She is nothing. NO ONE FEARS BEYONCE- SHE IS NOT A THREAT. SHE IS THE ONE WHO IS SCARED.

    TO BEAT BEYONCE, You do not need to be powerful singer. You just need to believe in yourself, be THINNER AND BETTER LOOKING THAN HER AND HAVE CHARISMA. The Spice girls have that. Aaahliayh had it. JLO and Rihanan have it and that is why THEIR CAREERS SCARE FAT BEYONCE.

    Mariah, Madonna Janet, , Shania Twain, Celine dominated the 90’s. Beyonce has never dominated anything. 2000 was about Brit, Xtina. Later 2000 is Gaga, Rihanna and Adele. Even during her one time prime 2003 – 50 cent sold MORE than Beyoince.

    Beyonce is overrated. She is not threat, she cannot shut down NO ONES CAREER, THAT IS WHY JLO came from hollywood, with not singing ability and was reigning during 2000 to 2003 – she was the most famous woman alive, while beyonce had to sit watch JLO get number 1 albums, singles remix and number 1 movies. JLO was crowned the best booty, so fatyonce had to swagger jack.

    JLO was even 30 plus and Beyoince 21 and she COULD NOT SHUT JENNY LO DOWN. JLO HAD THAT EMPIRE AND BEYONCE WAS TEHRE WATCHING IN SHAME, SO MUCH SO, SHE HAD TO CPOY JLO.

    BEYONCE IS NOTHING. JUST AN OVERRATED SINGER WHO HAS OUT STAYED HER WELCOME.

        No I am serious, Beyonce is not threat to anyone. She is no madonna. And do not let Kesha’s weak vocals fool you. Weak vocal singers always f*** up Beyonce: JLO, Rih, Spice girls, Britney

    Teairra mari as Chilli. Chilli was the s*** and so is Teairra. She’s short and has similar features. T Boz would be hard to replicate that would have to dub her voice into the movie.

    TLC is the 4th best selling group of all time.
    The spice girls are number 2 and Destiny’s Child is 3rd. The Andrews sisters are the biggest group with 100 Million++.
    So get your facts straight. TLC are far from the best group of anything. A movie about them? WTF don’t we know about them? A movie isn’t needed like seriously… They were ok while they lasted. However if they never existed other groups would still be. That’s the problem with the new generation and the last recent one. Whitney wasn’t the first black pop star. Mahailia Jackson was doing 8 million in the 30’s and had 1 million sellers throughout her whole career. The Andrew sisters were slaying four decades and not one girl group has surpassed them. We give way to much credit. The innovators and I mean the true legends came during the beginning of the industry and none after the 70’s

      Umm, the article said TLC was “ONE OF” the world’s most talented, celebrated and highest-selling female group[s] of all time. It didn’t say that they were THE highest selling female group! Learn how to read correctly.
      TLC always gave credits to their inspirations and legends before them, so calm your tits! Just because you (personally) don’t care for them and don’t want to see a movie about them, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have one! They have fans, and we want to see one. Point Blank!

    Oh please, not here for people seeking sympathy. VH1 can get their sympathy seeking documentary and stuff it. These guys overspent against the label’s advances and after they found out they were broke (the label has to recoup all expenses), they went to cry to the media and tried to make LA Reid look bad. Now they are back to their sympathy seeking tactics, yawn….Next.

    Being a recording artist is contractual work and you have to make money for the label. Someone better warn Rita Ora that Beyonce is not going to pay for those knee high boots, the label paid for those and charged them on the advances they gave to Rita Ora and seeing that they are hardly recouping anything from that s*** album, this b**** will be left owing the label millions. But Gay-Z (ex drug dealer, school drop-out, semi-illiterate) runs the label so one cannot be surprised that him and his thieving fraud of a wife can be bankrolling this FLOP.

      First of all dude get your facts straight instead of assuming. TLC were broke because of their contract which made their label and management own the majority of the profits. Their manager Pebbles own sole rights to all their publishing and controlled everything so of course they were left with next to nothing. They finally negotiated a new deal for FanMail and are now ok. The only reason T-Boz went broke again was because of her medical bills for sickle cell and her brain tumour which requires the use of steroids hence her weight gain. These ladies haven’t had it easy and therefore deserve all the success and acknowledgement for everything they have done and paved the way for the females of today. This movie will be a classic if done correctly.

    Beyonce is a thieving, dumb, illiterate b****, who should do all song writers a favor and disappear from the music scene. Cannot wait for her next project to FLOP so Sony can drop her ass, then this b**** can sign to RCA, FLOP again and finally disappear forever from making music.

    Keke Palmer should play Chilli hands down. She is the only person I know who could do Chilli justice. Keke can sing, dance and act.

    Lauren London should play Left Eye. I believe Lauren would do a good job. She got the acting chops to do Left Eye justice., but she might have to lose weight because Left Eye was a skinny little thing and Lauren is kinda thick.

    T-Box is gonna be difficult to cast because of her voice. Everybody who know that T-Boz have a very distinctive voice. The actress that plays T-Boz should a deep, husky voice like T-Boz.

    Vanessa L. Williams should play Pebbles, the 80s singer who founded and started TLC’s career.
