‘Power’ Producers Ready Mariah Carey Biopic

Published: Tuesday 18th Jul 2017 by David

Starz, the platform to thank for the shows ‘Spartacus‘ and ‘Power‘ have committed to creating a TV drama based on Mariah Carey‘s life.

Carey, alongside Brett Ratner, Stella Bulochnikov and Teri Weinberg, stand as the show’s executive producers and will offer viewers a Mariah-approved version of her journey to superstardom penned by Nina Colman.

It tells the story of an ambitious bi-racial 16-year-old girl, an aspiring singer/songwriter who survived a difficult childhood to become the biggest selling female music artist of all time.

A premiere date is yet to be set.

News of the drama follows the demise of her ill-fated reality tv show ‘Mariah’s World’ which aired on E! via NBC and drops as the superstar vocalist braces herself for life at Epic Records without her long-time friend and executive Antonio L.A. Reid.

      “Go listen to Teen Spirit…cause that’s the one the GP knows dahhhhling.” *Plays One Sweet Slay* -Mariah Carey 🍸💋 lol

    • SMH July 18, 2017

      Lol seriously. She needs to stop trying to sell that lie because nobody is buying it except her sheep.

    Mariah has not sold more than Whitney nor Madonna.

    • Music lover July 18, 2017

      Actually she did… The only woman I know who beat her in that department is Madonna.. I have also read somewhere that Rihanna has also sold more records…

      • SMH July 18, 2017

        Then you’re reading fake news because Rihanna is NOWHERE NEAR Mariah’s record sales. Not even half way.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 18, 2017

      Mariah has sold more than Whitney. At least until Whitney´s death (there was a boost after her death obviously). If Whitney hadn´t taken the drugs route maybe she would have sold more since she was the bish that used to sell more per album. But Mariah has worked longer and harder and has sold more. Not more than Celine though. Whitney is 4th. Mariah is probably 3rd. All of them are monumental so it is irrelevant.
      Rihanna??? LMAO yeah like digital singles can compare.

    *rolls eyes in head*
    I am so sick and tired of these damn musical dramas.
    They are all unnecessary & lame.
    and when will Mariah Carey just accept the fact that despite her many accolades, she is no longer a viable star. PERIOD!

    • Shaquiiii July 19, 2017

      Who said it was a Musical Drama?

  4. HiHiElsie July 18, 2017

    Who is playing her? Ariana grande or Leona lewis

    • Fancy BISH July 18, 2017

      The imposters? I don’t think so *Macaulay Culkin voice* lol

  5. Travon July 18, 2017

    I said this on Deadline and I’ll say it again,

    “Love her or hate her, she isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. The haters will just have to DEAL with it. Expect 20 more years of Mariah reigning on HER terms. I love her to death.”

    • SMH July 18, 2017

      Reigning? Lmao she hasn’t been relevant in the last 10 years.

    • Fancy BISH July 18, 2017

      Yaaaas dahhhling 💋

  6. SMH July 18, 2017

    Lmao. Mess.

    1. She already did this with “Glitter”.
    2. She is not the biggest selling female artist of all time, point blank. This isn’t one of those lies that becomes the truth if you keep repeating it over and over again lol, no matter what her delusional sheep think. In case youre wondering, Nana Mouskori, a greek singer, is the biggest selling female artist of all time. Look it up.

    • Shaquiiii July 19, 2017

      Not really. Glitter was loosely based on her life. VERY LOOSELY.

    Mariah carey would be a good Super Bowl performer. (yeah I said it) and this is after me going to see her this past weekend at her Infinity show. I must admit, next to Janet, she’s the best lip syncher ever. But, you can’t deny the number of hits she has! remarkable.

    • Theman July 18, 2017

      Stop bullshytting. U ain’t go..

  8. Theman July 18, 2017

    Mariah has sold more in the US than all of them. She has sold more than Celine too… And her docuseries did alright.. She is one of the greatest to ever do it….
