It’s official. As of today, January 12, 2016, ABC Family will be known as FreeForm to better match its shows, which are really more for teens and YA than families.
With the name change comes a few other changes as well, like new faves to look out for — one of which will be all about ya’ girl Nicki Minaj. And nope, it’s not a reality show. Simply called, Nicki, this scripted comedy series began filming yesterday and will tell the true story of her life.
Peep the pics below for a few behind-the-scenes sneak peeks:
I literally cried watching her taped audition. I demanded to meet her! Sat in a room with her teaching her how to rap by doing a beat on the table & forcing her to stay on beat! Lol. Then pulled out all the attitude she had in her lil body. Haha! She's tough! And so sweet & cute. #ArianaNeal #LilNicki Welcome to the family lil lady bug! 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘 #ABCFamily #Freeform #Nicki
I am honored and excited to announce that I've literally hand picked the main characters of my scripted series "Nicki" ~ #ABCFamily #Freeform ~ I've been going to the auditions falling in love with some incredible people. Looking forward to unveiling this groundbreaking new show for you guys in 2016! 😘😘😘😘❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Will you be watching when it premieres later this year?
