“I told you Black Mafia Family was coming and it’s going to be the biggest show on television. Meech and Terry are legends and I am excited to bring their story to Starz,” 50 Cent told NME. “Black Mafia Family has all the hallmarks of a great drama, from the larger-than-life Flenory brothers to the deadly, high-stakes world they inhabited,” Starz CEO Jeffrey Hirsch added. “This series is going to be an incredible ride for audiences around the world.”
Most recently, it was announced that Eminem will be making a guest appearance on the show as Richard Wershe, aka White Boy Rick. “I’m honored and appreciative of my good friend Em for supporting my new show BMF,” 50 Cent told The Wrap. “We couldn’t do a show based in Detroit without incorporating the legend that is Eminem.” To learn more about the series, including the star-studded cast and release date, keep reading.
