A year after Lifetime first announced plans to bring the true life story of Rap pioneers Salt-N-Pepa to the small screen (click here to read), the biopic’s debut trailer has arrived.
Unlike the network’s other biographical films dedicated to music’s leading female figures, the femcees’ saga won’t be limited to a one-time movie event. Instead, it will be a three-hour series that chronicles everything from the group’s formation to its dissension and more.
Starring GG Townson and Laila Odom as Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton respectively, the unauthorized biopic boasts actor Mario Van Peebles as its director.
Executive produced by Denton and James, no release date has been announced as of time reported.
