Just as we were certain T-Boz‘s checks had stop coming in, Vh1 comes to the rescue to offer a her and (TLC bandmate) Chilli Executive Producer & Consultancy positions on their TLC-inspired biopic. The film will depict the story behind Chilli, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, and Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, as well as their journey to pop culture icons. Kate Lanier (author of Beauty Shop) will pen the biopic.
“Statement from Jeff Olde of Vh1: With the tremendous success of our scripted series ‘Single Ladies,’ we now know that viewers will come to VH1 for quality scripted projects. We’re eager to expand on that success with this bio-pic franchise that will allow us to explore our music, pop culture, and authentic storytelling strengths in yet another format. We’re honored to collaborate with Chilli, Tionne, and Bill Diggins in sharing their own personal story and TLC’s record-breaking legacy with VH1 viewers.”
