Starz has announced the premiere date for a new documentary series on the Detroit brothers who inspired the network’s hit drama series BMF.
The eight-part docuseries titled The BMF Documentary: Blowing Money Fast chronicles the rise and fall of the Black Mafia Family, and will premiere on Oct. 23, the network said in a recent press release.
The BMF was founded by Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory in the 1980s. The two teens from inner-city Detroit combined their bravado and brains to create what would become a massive drug trafficking organization.
The docuseries features interviews with former BMF members, insiders, associates, and celebrity figures close to the family.
Per Starz, “The fabled story spans four decades across five major U.S. cities, immersing viewers in a network of crisscrossing relationships between crime, hip-hop, and law enforcement. The series affords viewers exclusive access inside all the epic family feuds, high stakes drug deals, suspicious murders, and champagne drenched parties attended by hip-hop royalty.”
The docuseries is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, the rap mogul behind the current drama series BMF, and Shan Nicholson (CNN’s Jerusalem: City of Faith and Fury).
