‘Street Dreams’ will follow his journey from drug dealing to hip hop royalty
Nas isn’t new to venturing into tv. Last year he produced The Get Down for Netflix as well as the skateboarding crime film The Land. His newest venture comes after BET hit rating records with the release of The New Edition Story. They’re looking to follow up the success with an hour long pilot of Street Dreams.
Jonathan Levine, writer of The Wackness and creator of Rush will write and direct the project. The show was initially in production with Xbox Entertainment Studios as a half hour comedy but is now planned as an hour long drama.
The show is described as a story of family, music and the struggles of succeeding in the rap game. No word on a release date yet but late summer is the earliest it’s likely to make it on to screens.
