VH1 to Release Biopic on R&B Group TLC

| December 2, 2011 | 0 Comments

VH1 has announced their plans to release a scripted series of biopics, with the first one telling the story of female R&B group, TLC. The biopic will of course feature the ups and downs of the trio’s career such as their rise to fame, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes’ arson charge  and her tragic death in 2002. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas will serve as consultants and executive producers of the film.

“With the tremendous success of our scripted series ‘Single Ladies,’ we now know that viewers will come to VH1 for quality scripted projects. We’re eager to expand on that success with this biopic franchise that will allow us to explore our music, pop culture, and authentic storytelling strengths in yet another format,” said Jeff Olde, Executive VP of Original Programming and Production at VH1.

We recently reported on rumors that Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins filed for bankruptcy, but it looks like she’ll be bringing in some much needed revenue, with her role in the film’s production.
