Mariah Carey is heading to the small screen. Sort of.
Now that Monday has passed and everyone is done poking fun of Mimi’s recent rigid performance, let’s get to business. The elusive chanteuse is executive producing a scripted show for Starz based around her life – namely Carey’s rise to fame.
Deadline, who broke the news, reports:
Written by Nina Colman (Mahogany), the drama is set in 1986 New York City and chronicles the rise 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.
Colman, who will serve as showrunner, executive produces alongside Carey and Golden Globe nominee Stella Bulochnikov (Boss) via their Magic Carpet Productions as well as Ratner, Teri Weinberg (Ugly Betty) who previously had developed with Colman, and John Cheng (Horrible Bosses).
So… basically another Glitter.
