The legacy of Christopher Wallace aka Biggie Smalls will never be forgotten in the world of hip-hop. Now according to sources, his memory will live on through Hollywood as well. TBS is developing a scripted TV series based on Biggie Smalls lyrics.
The series will be titled “Think B.I.G,” and will document the misfortune of an inner-city kid who desperately wants to create a better life for his family. “Think B.I.G” is being created and produced by Mass Appeal, which is in partnership with Voletta Wallace (Biggie’s mother) for Notorious B.I.G. Inc. and Wayne Barrow of Bystorm Films. Brett Weitz, Executive Vice President of original programming for TBS quoted “Think B.I.G.” speak to the types of projects we will cultivate with Mass Appeal moving forward. Mass Appeal is a leader in developing unique stories with diverse voices. There’s no better partner for us to connect with this vibrant, impassioned audience.”
There has been no word on who the cast will be or when the show will be aired. However, I’m pretty sure fans of the late rapper are ecstatic to see Notorious B.I.G. has a show based off of his life.
Will you tune into the show when it airs?
