Feature Is First in a Series of Scripted Music-Focused TV Movies to Air on VH1

Principal Photography Scheduled to Commence Early 2013

LOS ANGELES, CA - November 26th, 2012 - VH1 is casting the roles of Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, for a full-length TV movie based on the celebrated pop/ hip hop/ R&B group TLC. With a script by acclaimed screenwriter Kate Lanier ("What's Love Got To Do With It," "Set it Off," "Beauty Shop"), the untitled film is slated to begin shooting in early 2013.

TLC's humble beginnings in Atlanta quickly led to an unprecedented rise to fame in the 1990's as one of the world's most talented, celebrated and highest-selling female groups of all time. Through very public and high-profile success, turmoil and tragedy, TLC left an indelible stamp of female empowerment that changed the face of the music industry forever.

The two surviving members of the group, Chilli and T-Boz, have signed on as consultants and executive producers for the movie. Executive producing the TLC bio-pic are Bill Diggins and Maggie Malina. Alexander Motlagh is executive producing for Pop Films. Jeff Olde and Jill Holmes serve as executive producers for VH1.
