VH1 signs up to produce the trio’s story after deciding to try their hand in the movie business. After the success of their first ever scripted series “Single Ladies,” VH1 figures ‘why not’ take it a step further. The TLC film will be the first of a series of music bio-pics the network plans to release. Check out an excerpt of their press release for further information regarding the new project.
Building off the success of the scripted movie “Single Ladies” and its follow-up hit series, VH1 is getting into the TV movie business with a series of scripted bio-pics featuring musicians and pop culture icons. The dramatic story behind the legendary ’90s R&B/hip-hop/pop trio TLC will be featured in the first TV movie for VH1 in this series. The two surviving members of the group, Chilli and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, have signed on as consultants and executive producers for the movie. Acclaimed screenwriter Kate Lanier (“What’s Love Got To Do With It” and “Beauty Shop) has signed on to pen the bio-pic.
Even though, I’ve already seen the groups E! True Hollywood Stories episode, I am actually looking forward to the film, can’t wait to see how VH1 executes.
