Nicki Minaj leaving Barneys New York in Los Angeles

Zendaya Coleman has her own Barbie doll, but rap mogul Nicki Minaj has her own television comedy series coming to ABC -- the same network that brought you Empire.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Minaj will produce and star in the comedy TV series that will begin shooting in Queens, NY this winter.

The new television series is based on Minaj's life. I wonder who she will cast to play her "boyfriend" Meek Mill?

From The Hollywood Reporter:

The half-hour, single-camera comedy is based on Minaj's family's immigration from Trinidad in the early '90s. The untitled series will center on her childhood in Queens with her vibrant family and how her evolution led to her eventual rise to international fame. The project will shoot in Minaj's hometown of Queens, New York starting this winter.

“This is one of the more unique adventures I've ever embarked on,” said Minaj in a statement. “I couldn't be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”

      --------
      I don't watch Empire (I try to keep my gays to my mom and her wife, no need to watch flex gays and Terrence Howard relive all his characters in the same voice.) but ain't it on Fox?

      Nobody is going to watch Nicki show... I'd rather watch Ciara sing Helen Kellers greatest hits.

    • missmiami305

      I'm a fan so hey I might watch. Shouldn't be on ABC though

    • RaginB

      Does she really need a show? Like honestly...

      If it is starting from her childhood, what part is she going to play? Her mom? I'm here for it because before she got all Hollywood I liked her story. She went to a performing arts school for one thing and that alone can be very entertaining. Sorta like Fame.

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      Hey Roses! Just had to pop in and say.. I hope they have a old school laugh track for this cuz I don't think ANYONE is going to find this funny...

      Speaking of funny... I was in so much pain last night I couldn't move. So 6'6 was holding me...I pooted right on his leg....HAARRD! I tried to stop it from happening but it sounded like gunshots! He flinched so I know he felt it...ninja didn't move! I was mor..TEEE..fied.. All I could do was hold the blanket down and pray it dissipated before he moved..

      Blackish will do fine..I think. I love that show. If anything ppl can petition for Hulu to pick it up. I think it's smart she's trying to switch lanes but I would've picked someone to play me.

    • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

      So moesha part 2 huh

    • ATL White Guy

      Agreed, she is pretty. I always tell wifey Nicki does look nice when she has normal hair (no pink, purple, beehive, etc) and not those chucky doll faces.

    • Jusstlookn2

      welll

    • Milani

      Nicki is a beautiful woman, but from what I've seen on tv, it's her attitude that makes her an ugly person. Very ugly.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      He'll be alright, let just hope when you are healed he doesnt break it again...tell he can't go hard in the paint no mo

    • Lolalao

      What did she say? How can she pull anything negative from Mattel honoring that young woman with a doll.

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      Dont you laugh at that SIS don't do that! ROFL...my womanhood is challenged right now..dam muscle relaxers..(thats what Im saying it is and sticking to it! LOL)

    • ATL White Guy

      Could she become the next Eve? Rapper, Hook singer on everyone else's songs, Actress, then marry a white guy? Maybe there's hope for me?

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      Shugah..He so tall I couldn't have missed him if he was on the other side! His feet dangles off the King bed!

    • Str8tUpMenace

    • ATL White Guy

      Couldn't agree with you more. Loved her flow, her show, and her looks. She could give that little smirk and side eye and I was like whoah! Saw her in concern in Chi one time, sat in front row. nice view.

    • missmiami305

      I know. That ish was scary.

    • Jusstlookn2

      My pleasure. LOL

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      She turned it around and tried to make it about her... saying congrats I had my barbie first (to make it simple) smh .... she is a fugging lame .... can't stand her ugh

    • missmiami305

      Them soldiers killed that captain so they could get outta dodge. I don't get it though. They keep mentioning San Diego like LA is the only place infected

    • Jusstlookn2

      Wonders if that will happen? She has a Swiss made family now.

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      Just sickening ..... fugging sickening ... can't stomach her passive aggressive azz...

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      a demon ..... like many on tv ... sociopath ....

    • Lolalao

      She's a lame for that. That's what the media wants, black women that are petty. Why can't it be one of the black women on here with the Fame. There's some very sharp & uplifting women on this site that post.

    • Lolalao

      Nicki made it into the big time but Eve really has that lovable factor. I wish she'd come back out.

    • Lolalao

      I was mad she took that money from MTV. I know they paid her to do that Miley thing. I felt it made black women look like we can't control our emotions.

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      Yep.... that's what they are pushing ... to poison the people that are sleep .... this is why you should at least have 2 or 3 positive role models in your private lives ... cause if ya don't ... this shyt up top is what you have left to look up to smh

      3. jamie lee curtis (she's seem sneaky)
      Nick Jonas(because no one suspects it)

    • TheWildChild

      Well T.I. Harris just inked a Talent/Development deal with Warner Bros. TV. ? WB will develop potential new series for Tip' and may cast him for existing projects. FYI ? Tip' tiny youthful build is a big demand on screen, his stage presence is good to the lenses, that's why Showtime and Starz love him. Now as for Nick Minaj, ? not sure if I want to see her dragging a yoga ball on TV.

    • BLOODBLOOD

      Why? ?

    • Queen Negus
