Last December, Megan Thee Stallion announced that she has inked a major first-look deal with Netflix to executive produce and create her own shows for the streamer. Now, months later, the hip-hop star has revealed plans to develop a comedy series loosely based on her life.

In a new interview with Deadline, Tracey Pakosta, Netflix’s head of comedy spoke about the new Megan Thee Stallion series sharing the current progress, “It’s very early. She came in and she pitched something loosely based on her life growing up, and we got very excited about it. We think she’s special.” When the initial announcement was made regarding the rapper’s first-look deal, Pakosta praised the artist, “Megan is a multi-talented creative force who has consistently made her mark on culture. She’s always growing and evolving as an artist, and we’re thrilled that she’s making a home at Netflix for this next chapter in her journey.”

The Houston-native previously spoke about her ambitions to expand beyond just being a musician stating, “I’ve always had a passion for telling creative and entertaining stories, so I’m thrilled about this partnership with Netflix. Venturing into production is the next step in my journey as an entrepreneur and I can’t wait to bring all my ideas to life and for my Hotties to watch.”

Just last week, Megan graduated from Texas Southern University, celebrating yet another milestone in her life. There is no further information regarding her upcoming Netflix series at the moment.
