Posting to his Instagram account, Fif shared a photo of the pilot episode outline and, in the caption, mentioned that the casting information would be coming soon. The story will center around Big Meech and his involvement with the Black Mafia Family, which was a large drug organization formerly based in Detroit. – via HotNewHipHop.com
As previously reported, 50 has already secured the exclusive rights and official stamp of approval to produce the project from the leader of BMF, Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory.
Sidenote: Thank you to everyone who has reached out to me and my team about casting for the series set to premier on the STARZ network. Right now we’re playing the waiting game. It takes a significant amount of time to get the business side secured for a project of this magnitude. Once the script is written, casting is the next phase.
Back in December, I tweeted 50 to see if I could get any information about the casting calls. No updates were provided until about 6 months later.
At any rate, I am just thrilled to see the project moving forward.
Keep checking back in to The Pen Hustler for casting info as it becomes available. I will do my best to get it out there as soon as humanly possible.
Who do YOU think should portray Big Meech and his brother in the series?
If you are interested in casting for the series, please send me your info along with any pics or headshots and I will feature you on the site.
You never know, you could land you the role!
