Charley Gallay/Getty Images for TV OneThe Lifetime movie network is developing a biopic of Michel’le.
“Dr. Dre’s girlfriend for more than a decade and later married to Suge Knight, Michel’le was there for N.W.A.’s wild ride, with all of its dramatic ups and down,” reads the network’s description of what’s tentatively being called The Michel’le Story. “Finally, after years of silence, Michel’le is ready to reveal her side of the story.”
The TV movie will be produced by Sony Pictures Television and Thinkfactory Media. Michel’le and Thinkfactory Media previously collaborated on TV One’s R&B Divas L.A.
Thinkfactory Media executive Adam Reed tells Shadow and Act, “Michel’le is one of the most talented, fearless women I have ever met, captivating audiences both on stage and in front of the camera. The past few years of working with her have been incredible and we are thrilled she’s allowing us to lower the veil to tell her inspiring inside story as no one else could.”
Michel’le adds, “For many years I was unwilling to share my personal experiences. I am now ready to open up about my career, relationships and family. I am confident that Thinkfactory Media will give an accurate depiction of my life and this tumultuous yet amazing journey I’ve been on.”
