‘BMF,’ inspired by story of Detroit brothers renewed for 2nd season
“BMF” received the ultimate vote of confidence on Thursday with the announcement that it would be extended for a second season.
The news came on Starz less than a week after the series debuted on Sunday.
Set in Detroit and partially filmed, “BMF” is a fictional version of the genesis of Demetrius (Big Meech) Flenory and Terry (Southwest T) Flenory, two brothers from Motor City who built a national drug empire.
Executive producer Curtis (50 Cent) Jackson’s crime drama is so far the No. 1 premiere in the Starz app for 2021, according to a press release.
“BMF” plays Demetrius (Lil Meech) Flenory Jr., who plays his real-life father, and Da’Vinchi, who plays Terry Flenory. The cast also includes Russell Hornsby, Michole Briana White, Steve Harris, Snoop Dogg, Wood Harris and Detroit rapper Arkeisha (Kash Doll) Wright.
On Sunday night, 50 Cent and “BMF” showrunner Randy Huggins came to Metro Detroit to show the first episode at Emagine Royal Oak. They were joined by several actors, including Flenory Jr.
