Next to get the biopic treatment — is Mariah Carey? Well…sort of.
Deadline is reporting that a fictional, scripted drama series is in the works at Starz, based on her experiences. She is executive producing the as-of-now untitled project with her friend Brett Ratner. It’s written by Nina Colman.
The series will be set in 1986 New York City, chronicling the rise of a “ambitious bi-racial 16-year-old girl, an aspiring singer/songwriter who survived a difficult childhood to become the biggest selling female music artist of all time.”
Colman will be show runner, and alongside Carey and Ratner, Stella Bulochnikov and Teri Weinberg are also executive producers.
The music legend recently headlined her own docuseries on E!, Mariah’s World.
