Both Anthony and Serayah will also have recurring guest roles on the show produced by 50’s G-Unit Film and Television in league with Lionsgate TV for Starz.
The show is based on the true story of Detroit’s infamous Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory drug trade sway that caused an ugly storm in the late 1980s. 50 landed the deal with the Jeff Hirsh-run Starz in 2018 to officially run the series in April 2020.
