Xscape is back together and working with Mona Scott-Young (Love and Hip Hop franchise) to bring their story to the small screen.
The group and Mona’s production company Monami Entertainment are currently shopping an Xscape biopic to various networks.
According to Deadline, the recently announced TV One biopic is not supported by the group.
“We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world,” said Xscape in a statement. “This partnership will allow us to tell our story about our lives the way we lived it. It’s our truth about the rise, the fall, and the return of Xscape. We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing. We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.”
“Xscape has had a huge impact on music and are one of the most successful female groups of all time. Monami Entertainment is honored to be charged with bringing the authorized Xscape story to the world,” says Scott-Young.
After nearly two decades apart, Xscape announced their reunion in February.
