Think B.I.G. will be a scripted television show loosely based on The Notorious B.I.G. lyrics.
Biggie‘s unique way with words captured life’s ups and downs and could make you visualize what he was talking about. Now his words are inspiring a television show.
TBS is linking with Mass Appeal to create a series titled Think B.I.G. where Biggie’s lyrics will be the driving force of the plot of the show. It will be an animated show that follows the life of New York City teenager whose life loosely revolves around B.I.G.’s words. Mashable reports that the teen is “desperately trying to create a better future for his daughter and infant son.”
The show is being created and produced in partnership with Wayne Barrow of Bystorm Films and Voletta Wallace for Notorious B.I.G. Inc.
The two companies are also working together on Storyville, a digital animated series that features the hilarious real-life stories from musicians, actors, comedians, writers and artists.
In a statement, Brett Weitz, TBS executive vice president of original programming says:
“Storyville and 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.”
