An Xscape Biopic is Coming to A T.V. Screen Near You
Kick off your shoes and relax your feet.
Mona Scott-Young, the producer of the Love and Hip Hop franchise, is adding a new venture under her belt. She is producing an authorized (very important to note) Xscape biopic featuring the group’s original members via Monami Entertainment.
Kandi Burruss-Tucker, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott just recently announced their reunion in celebration of their upcoming 25th anniversary of the release of their debut single “Just Kickin’ It” from their album Hummin Comin’ At Cha. With three consecutive platinum albums and six Top 10 hits on the Billboard charts, the group had huge success. Fans were unexpectedly disappointed after their disbanding, so talks of the reunion have ignited a buzz around the project.
Currently shopping the biopic to networks, they are also exploring a docu-follow option that would likely give more of an inside look.
“We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world,” said Xscape in a statement. “This partnership will allow us to tell our story about our lives the way we lived it. It’s our truth about the rise, the fall, and the return of Xscape. We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing. We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.”
Oddly enough, TV One announced the Xscape biopic as part of its 2017-18 slate last week. However, the group denied this was so, calling it “disrespectful and disappointing.”
“Xscape has had a huge impact on music and are one of the most successful female groups of all time. Monami Entertainment is honored to be charged with bringing the authorized Xscape story to the world,”shared Scott-Young.
