telefilm/mini-series in the can
DESCRIPTION:
(from Lifetime's press release, November 2020) Salt-N-Pepa details the journey of Queensborough Community College students Cheryl "Salt" James and Sandra "Pepa" Denton as they enter the world of rap and hip hop, after recording a song for their friend Hurby Azor. Salt-N-Pepa made a huge impact as one of the first all-female rap groups, changing the look of hip hop and being unafraid to talk about sex and share their thoughts on men. The movie follows the group as they become the first female rap act to go platinum and experience ground-breaking success with multiple awards, including a Grammy award - paving the way for all female rappers to follow. The film will feature performances of Salt-N-Pepa's greatest hits, including: "Let's Talk About Sex", "What a Man", "Shoop" and "Push It". The movie stars GG Townson as Cheryl "Salt" James, Laila Odom as Sandra "Pepa" Denton, Cleveland Berto as music producer "Hurby Azor," Jermel Howard as rapper "Treach" and Monique Paul as "DJ Spinderella." Salt-N-Pepa is produced by Sony Pictures Television and directed by Mario Van Peebles (New Jack City, Baadasssss!) from a script by Abdul Williams (The Bobby Brown Story, The New Edition Story). Robert Teitel (The Hate U Give, Barbershop Franchise) from State Street Pictures serves as executive producer. The biopic is also executive produced by Cheryl James, Sandra Denton, Shakim Compere and Queen Latifah and is co-executive produced by Hurby Azor. Sebastian Dungan serves as the Lifetime executive in charge of production.
