Two words...BLACK EXCELLENCE!! Starz network premiered its latest original series BMF on Thursday, September 23rd inside of the Cellairis Amphitheatre at Lakewood. The entire venue was dripping in melanin magic, and Media Girls Network caught everything from red carpet exclusives to behind the scenes action. The theme and dress code for this star studded event was all black, black tie attire to represent the new non fiction drama. Curtis 50cent Jackson hosted the event and expressed his gratitude to the talented writers, producers, directors, and all star cast that collectively captured the shows authenticity.
BMF (Black Mafia Family) is based on a true story that takes place in Detroit, Michigan, the series depicts the life of popular drug lords Big Meech and his brother Southwest T. It is a story of brotherhood, and it shows how they used the family drug business to create many opportunities for those who suffered from poverty. Show producer and hip hop mogul 50cent picked up the project following his success of his productions; Starz series Power, Powerbook 2, Raising Kanan, and ABC’s For Life. He collaborated with show writer and producer Randy Huggins and multi talented actress and director Tasha Smith.
