We shall be seeing something from Atlanta-bred recording artist and movie star, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges on the streaming service, BET+ very soon.
BET+ has just announced via email that the “Fast & Furious” actor will be teaming with the network to develop a series that will draw inspiration from the career of recording artist, Ludacris. The show will be a half-hour long and is being labeled a dramedy that will be based on the entertainer’s “experience coming up in the competitive music scene in Atlanta as DJ Chris Lova Lova, the series follows the misadventures of a sharply drawn ensemble who are willing to do anything and everything to bolster ratings at their hip hop radio station.”
The project is being done by Luda’s company, “Disturbing tha Peace” where his partner and longtime manager, Chaka Zulu will be executive producers, along with Larry Wilmore, Malcolm D. Lee, Jeff Dixon, Dominique Telson, Josh Bratman, David Blackman, and Noah Gardenswartz. Luda will serve as the music supervisor and Gardenswartz is writing the script for the untitled show.
For those who did not know, Ludacris started his career as a DJ personality calling himself Chris Love Lova at Atlanta radio station, Hot 97.5, which is now Hot 107.9. While working there, the talented showman released the single, “What’s Your Fantasy” and a debut album, “Incognegro” under the moniker, Ludacris, which led to him getting a deal with Def Jam. His breakout single and video, “Southern Hospitality” brought him to the masses and they put out the album, “Back For The First Time” and his career took off from there.
With the remarkable career that Luda has had, last year, he had his star embedded on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6426 Hollywood Boulevard on May 18. The “Area Codes” rapper was the recipient of the 2,756th star on the famed stretch of road in California.
During his recording career, Ludacris has sold more than 24 million albums worldwide.
