“Nicki Minaj is a force to be reckoned with at everything she touches,” said Burke. “We’re beyond thrilled to bring her one-of-a-kind story to our channel. Nicki is an international superstar, yet not everyone knows how inspiring and hilarious her true story is, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”
The series will follow Minaj and her family’s immigration from Trinidad in the early 1990’s and her years growing up in Queens, New York.
“This is one of the more unique adventures I've ever embarked on,” said Minaj. “I couldn't be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”
Filming will start this winter in Queens.
