A Sitcom Based on Nicki Minaj's Life Is Coming to ABC Family


Nicki Minaj continues to reap the benefits of not accepting the pickle juice, as ABC Family has given a “series commitment” to a sitcom based on her life. The series will be written by Kate Angelo, the screenwriter of 2014’s Sex Tape, and plans to shoot this winter in Queens.

From ABC Family’s press release:

The half-hour comedy is based on Minaj and her family’s immigration from Trinidad in the early 1990’s. It will focus on her growing up in Queens with her vibrant family and the personal and musical evolution that led to her eventual rise to stardom.

Minaj joins Heems and John Legend on the growing list of artists whose lives are being turned into sitcoms, but hers is perhaps the most exciting of the bunch.

I hope it’s given a good name, like Queen of Queens. Or maybe something simpler, like Onika. ABC Family probably wouldn’t be OK with The Motherfucking Monster, but we can all hope.
