Look out world! Nicki Minaj is putting her acting skills learned at Laguardia High School to use. She's making major moves on her quest to take over the entertainment world. The Young Money raptress is gearing up to executive produce AND star in a scripted comedy series based on her life growing up in Queens, NY.
The series is set to air on ABC Family, written by “The Bernie Mac Show” writer Kate Angelo and produced by Kapital Entertainment, and the pilot episode will be shot in Nicki’s old neighborhood this winter, according to Deadline.
As you may or may not know, the “Anaconda” raptress was born in Trinidad and Tobago and moved to the U.S. as child. The upcoming series will bring a comedic take on what it was like for her immigrant family to adjust to life in Queens in the 90s.
The “Feeling Myself” rap star is super excited about the project saying,
“This is one of the more unique adventures I’ve ever embarked on. I couldn’t be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”
With credits under her belt such as The Other Woman and the upcoming Barbershop 3 film, Nicki should be a natural in front of the camera.
No word on an official premiere date, but we'll keep you posted.
