According to a press release sent out by the cable channel early this morning, a series of music themed biopics will debut on VH1 next year, with TLC being the first to get the treatment.
“Chilli” and “T-Boz” have both signed on to serve as consultants and executive producers. The telefilm will chronicle the groups rise to fame and yes, even tackle head on the car crash that killed its most controversial member, “Lefteye.”
Kate Lanier, who wrote the screenplay for the Tina Turner biopic “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” will pen the screenplay; while Bill Diggins and Maggie Malina will executive produce alongside “T-Boz” and “Chilli.”
Filming is expected to begin in the spring of 2012.
