The movie will launch a series of biopics planned by Vh1 that will span the lives and careers of musicians and pop culture icons.
The platinum selling rap/hip hop duo TLC shot to fame in the ‘90s with such hits as “What About Your Friends,” “Waterfall” and “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg.”
The movie will cover the journey of Rozonda “Chili” Thomas, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes as they conquered the hip hop world. The biopic will include financial problems the group endured, their platinum successes and the untimely death of Lopes, who died in an auto accident in Honduras in 2002.
Chilli and T-Boz will serve as consultants and executive producers for the film.
Jeff Olde of VH1 said in a statement, “We’re honored to collaborate with Chilli and Tionne in sharing their own personal story and TLC’s record-breaking legacy with VH1 viewers.”
