A Life Of Crime
STARZPLAY, the international premium streaming service from STARZ, announced today that the new original crime series “BMF,” from Executive Producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, will premiere on Sunday, 26 September. Set against the backdrop of 1980s Detroit, Michigan, and inspired by true legends, “BMF” tells the story of the real-life Flenory family. The series will stream on STARZPLAY across Europe, Latin America and Japan, with new episodes available every Sunday…
“BMF” is inspired by the true story of two brothers who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980s and gave birth to one of the most influential crime families in the United States. Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory’s charismatic leadership, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory’s business acumen and the fraternal partnership’s vision beyond the drug trade and into the world of hip-hop would render the brothers iconic on a global level. Their unwavering belief in family loyalty would be the cornerstone of their partnership and the crux of their eventual estrangement. This is a story about love, kinship and capitalism in the pursuit of the American dream.
