Having scored ratings winners with a bevy of biographical films related to top female music artists over the last few years (see: Aaliyah, Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston, and more), Lifetime is hoping rub a few more hits out of their magic lamp as it’s been announced they have ordered yet another set of music themed programs.
In addition to the previously announced biopic set to tell the stories of one of Gospel’s most renowned groups, The Clark Sisters (as we reported here), now the women’s network is turning the spotlight on female Rap pioneers Salt-N-Pepa.
Lifetime has ordered two music-themed miniseries, one revolving around female rap stars Salt-N-Pepa, the other focused on the Clark Sisters gospel group.
The miniseries revolves around Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton as they enter the world of hip hop and rap. The miniseries will incorporate the duo’s hits including “Let’s Talk About Sex,” “What a Man” and “Shoop.”
Queen Latifah will executive produce the miniseries alongside Salt-N-Pepa. Andy Hume, Dionne Harmon and James “Jimmy” Maynes are co-exec producers.
As of time reported, no air date has been announced.
