VH1 Moving Ahead On TLC Biopic w/ ‘Set It Off’ Screenwriter + Casting Underway For Early 2013 Shoot

VH1 Moving Ahead On TLC Biopic w/ 'Set It Off' Screenwriter + Casting Underway For Early 2013 Shoot

You might recall last December’s news from VH1, announcing that the network was developing a biopic on pop/ hip hop/ R&B group TLC.

Skip ahead about a year later, to tonight’s news that the project is still very much alive, and, in fact, is set to begin shooting in early 2013, with casting underway.

From a VH1 press release, screenwriter Kate Lanier (What’s Love Got To Do With It, Set it Off, Beauty Shop) has penned the screenplay for the film, which is currently untitled, and it’s said that Chilli and T-Boz have signed on as consultants and executive producers of the movie, along with Bill Diggins and Maggie Malina, as well as Alexander Motlagh for Pop Films.

Jeff Olde and Jill Holmes are serving as executive producers for VH1, on what is currently being called Untitled TLC Biopic.

VH1 says that the feature film is the first in a series of scripted music-focused TV movies that will air on VH1.

Principal photography is scheduled to begin in early 2013, with casting in full swing; although no word on what actors are in the running; whether they’re looking at known actors, or fresh faces.

Stay tuned…

O'So Krispie, the chick who won R U The girl should play Lisa IMO..


I think Lauren London should play Left Eye in the movie and maybe Keke Palmer should play a young Chilli


This would be somthen very fun to audition for!>!>!


Well, with all the f*cked up casting decisions regarding black biopics lately, I won't hold my breath that this film will be cast in any way that makes logical sense. But, as a TLC fan, I think their story would be interesting to tell.


I just hope and pray that Lanier brings her "Whats Love Got To Do With It?" game to this as opposed to her "Beauty Shop" game. This needs to be a high quality project.


I remember reading where tboz stated that she think Lauren London or Kyla Pratt could portray her
