STARZPLAY UK has released a little teaser trailer and a September premiere date for BMF (previously known as “Black Mafia Family”), a brand new crime drama for exec producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

‘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 United States. Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory’s charismatic leadership, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory’s business acumen and the fraternal partnership’s vision beyond the drug trade and into the world of hip-hop would render the brothers iconic on a global level. Their unwavering belief in family loyalty would be the cornerstone of their partnership and the crux of their eventual estrangement. This is a story about love, kinship and capitalism in the pursuit of the American dream.

Previously announced cast include series regulars Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the son of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory; Da’Vinchi (‘The Way Back’, ‘grown-ish’); Russell Hornsby (‘Fences’, ‘Grimm’); Michole Briana White (‘Dead to Me’, ‘She Hate Me’); Ajiona Alexus (‘Empire’, ’13 Reasons Why’); Eric Kofi-Abrefa (Blue Story, Fury); Myles Truitt (‘Black Lightning’, ‘The New Edition Story’); and Steve Harris (‘The Practice’, ‘Diary of a Mad Black Woman’) with Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight; Wood Harris (‘Empire’, ‘Creed’); Snoop Dogg (‘Dolemite Is My Name’, ‘Soul Plane’, ‘Training Day’) in recurring roles. La La Anthony (“’The Chi,’ ‘Think Like a Man’) and Serayah (‘Empire’, ‘Favorite Son’) are set as recurring guest stars.

‘BMF’ is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (co-creator of the ‘Power’ Universe, ‘For Life’), alongside showrunner, executive producer, writer and Detroit native Randy Huggins (‘Star’, ‘Rebel’, ‘Power’). Tasha Smith (‘Empire’, ‘Power’, ‘Why Did I Get Married?’) is set to direct multiple episodes and executive produce. Terri Kopp, Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements also serve as executive producers on the series. “BMF” is produced through Jackson’s G-Unit Film and Television in association with Lionsgate Television for STARZ.

BMF‘ premieres Sunday, 26th September 2021 on STARZPLAY in the UK and STARZ in the USA.
