Instead of just relying musicians to tell their stories via talking head interviews on Behind the Music, Vh1 is expanding into an untapped market: the scripted biopic. That’s right, the channel has decided to start working on biopics produced for television, the first of which will be a biopic of TLC.
TLC are a pretty good candidate for biopic treatment–they were the number one female group of all time for a stretch in the ’90s, and were screwed over by their record label–and they have the tragedy angle with Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez dying in 2002.
The TLC biopic is expected to start casting and filming soon, followed by a full series of similar biopics. [VIBE]
