VH1 plans pop-star biopics

Next will focus on hip-hop group TLC

On the heels of telepic “Single Ladies” and the series that followed, VH1 is turning its scripted pop-star biopics into a franchise, with a next, as-yet-untitled installment tracking the progress of ’90s hip-hop girl group TLC.

“Beauty Shop” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It” scribe Kate Lanier will write the script, following the band’s rise on the charts through its peak with “CrazySexyCool” and tracking the lives of its members as well as the untimely death of member Lisa Lopes.

“What Chilli Wants” exec producer Bill Diggins and VH1’s Maggie Malina will exec produce alongside surviving TLCers Chilli and Tionne Watkins.

The entries in the bio series will be individually greenlit and produced. VH1 has other biopic projects in the works but nothing officially set.
