Four days after its debut, Starz is giving 50 Cent’s “BMF” a second season.
The series was the top premiere on Starz this year.
“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,” Jeffrey Hirsch, president and CEO of Starz, said. “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 the country.
“BMF” stars Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., who is the real-life son of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, and Da’Vinchi, who plays Terry “Southwest T” Flenory. Russell Hornsby, Michole Briana White, Ajiona Alexus, Eric Kofi Abrefa, Myles Truitt and Steve Harris round out the series regulars. Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight and Wood Harris have recurring roles, while La La Anthony, Snoop Dogg and Serayah are booked as recurring guest stars.
In addition to Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, showrunner Randy Huggins, Terri Kopp, Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements executive produce. Tasha Smith will direct multiple episodes and executive produce. “BMF” is produced through Jackson’s G-Unit Film and Television in association with Lionsgate Television. The series was filmed in Atlanta and Detroit.
