ABC has approved a half-hour scripted comedy series based on Nicki Minaj's life growing up in Queens, New York.
To be executive produced by the rapper, the show which is set to begin production in New York soon, will also feature Minaj.
Before kicking off her music career, the 32-year-old rapper studied acting at Manhattan's LaGuardia High School after she immigrated with her family from Trinidad in the early 1990s.
"This is one of the more unique adventures I've ever embarked on," Minaj said. "I couldn't be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special."
The yet to be titled series will be written and produced by Kate Angelo.
Describing Minaj, an ABC executive said; "Nicki is an international superstar. Yet not everyone knows how inspiring and hilarious her true story is."
