Solvan “Slick” Naim is the mastermind behind a developing Netflix special. The untitled project puts a hip-hop twist on the most infamous love story of all time: “Romeo & Juliet.”
Aside from his other work on Netflix’s “It’s Bruno,” the co-writer joined Dave Broome to create the script. The forbidden romance takes part in none other than New York. A struggling Brooklyn waitress and wealthy aspiring musician fall in love. Both families, of course, not being fans of the unexpected partnership.
Queen Latifah will also be playing a production role as Flavor Unit Entertainment joins in with 25/7 Productions. Stay on the lookout for more details on the show’s debut.
