Surprise, Nicki Minaj Lands Autobiographical Sitcom on ABC Family

2014 American Music Awards - Red Carpet

Nicki Minaj’s life is about to get the small screen treatment. The new ABC Family comedy will follow the Queens rapper in her early years after moving from Trinidad. The show will be set in early 90s and will focus on Nicki’s family and her rise to stardom where she underwent her “personal and musical evolution” before becoming a superstar. “This is one of the more unique adventures I’ve ever embarked on,” said Nicki said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”

The pilot is set to be filmed in Queens this winter.
