Mariah Carey to Executive Produce Series Based on Her Rise to Fame
Mariah Carey is proving, once again, why she’s the HBIC.
Instead of going the ever-so-popular biopic route, the mother of two will be bringing her story to the small screen.
The songstress will reportedly be the subject of a new STARZ series, based entirely on the life story of the Long Island singer-turned-superstar, according to Deadline.
While the series will be based on real events from Mimi’s life, the show is billed as a “fictional” scripted series based on her journey to stardom.
Hollywood big wig Brett Ratner will be executive producing alongside Mariah herself.
The dramatic series is based in 1986 New York City, following the rise of a bi-racial, 16-year-old girl aspiring to become a singer/songwriter.
The fictional Carey will survive a very difficult childhood to become the biggest-selling female music artist of all time.
Maybe a show about her own life is the way to go, as the star has been accused of diva-like behavior on other people’s sets as of late.
Comedian Cedric Yarbrough recently claimed the 47-year-old superstar was completely unprofessional while shooting a cameo for summer comedy, The House.
“Yeah, a real funny cameo was SUPPOSED to happen in the new film #TheHouse with the superstar Mariah Carey. But it was ruined by superstar Mariah Carey.
“This lady was unprofessional & borderline abusive to our director, who tried his best to appease her every wish.”
He went on, “This kind of behavior should be called out for what it is. I miss ‘I had a vision of love’ Mariah. Be a damn professional.”
