BET is about to shoot a new series based on the life of Nas.
Following the success of last week’s New Edition Story, BET is looking to do a similar series for the story of Nas. On Tuesday, Deadline reported that BET is going forward with another music-related series called “Street Dreams,” which will be an hour-long show based on Nas' life.
According to Deadline, the show will take place in the early 90’s and "track the ascent of Nas, a young man from the Queensbridge projects who will go on to become a famous rapper, as he evolves from young man to crack dealer to rapper to adult."
There’s no word yet as for who will portray Nas in the series, but we do know that Jonathon Levine will be writing & directing the pilot episode. As more information comes to light, we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
