Crime Does Pay
STARZPLAY, the international premium streaming service from STARZ, announced today that the network has greenlit a second season of the original crime series “BMF” from Executive Producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. Set against the backdrop of 1980s Detroit, Michigan, “BMF” tells the story of the real-life Flenory family. The series premiered internationally on Sunday, 26 September, and streams across Europe, Latin America and Japan, with new episodes available every Sunday…
“Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson continues to find and cultivate stories like ‘BMF’ that are culturally relevant, bringing the network important untold stories that are incredibly diverse both in front of and behind the camera,” said Jeffrey Hirsch, President and CEO of STARZ. “Following such a strong debut, we’re excited to see what Curtis, Randy and the award-worthy cast deliver in the second season.”
“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 this country. 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.
“BMF” stars Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the son of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory; Da’Vinchi (The Way Back, “grown-ish”), Russell Hornsby (Fences, The Hate U Give), Michole Briana White (“Dead to Me,” She Hate Me), Ajiona Alexus (“Empire,” “13 Reasons Why”), Eric Kofi Abrefa (Blue Story, Fury), Myles Truitt (“Black Lightening,” “The New Edition Story”), Steve Harris (“The Practice,” Diary of a Mad Black Woman), with Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight and Wood Harris (“Empire,” Creed) in recurring roles. La La Anthony (“The Chi,” Think Like a Man) and Serayah (“Empire,” Favorite Son) are both set as recurring guest stars.
“BMF” is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (co-creator of the “Power” Universe, “For Life”), alongside showrunner, executive producer, writer and Detroit native Randy Huggins (“Star,” “Rebel,” “Power”). Tasha Smith (“Empire,” “Power,” Why Did I Get Married?) served as director and executive producer. Terri Kopp, Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements also serve as executive producers on the series. “BMF” is produced through Jackson’s G-Unit Film and Television in association with Lionsgate Television for STARZ.
