The untitled series follows the rise of the multi-platinum Houston rapper.
Time Studios announced they’re producing a documentary series on rapper Megan Thee Stallion. Roc Nation is also on board to produce the untitled series on the life and career of the self-proclaimed “Houston Hottie.”
The documentary series will chronicle the hip-hop star, born Megan Jovon Ruth Pete in San Antonio, Texas, going from a freestyle viral sensation to a multi-platinum selling superstar, The Wrap reports.
Shot with archival footage and new behind-the-scenes video, the docuseries will chronicle her youth growing up in Houston, Texas, how she developed her dynamic personality, and reveal the professional and personal obstacles she’s had to overcome along the way.

Millions of people are familiar with her as an entertainer, but this series will give her a chance to share her truth as never before,” Loren Hammonds, Time Studios co-head of documentaries, said to the outlet. “Her story is a powerful one, and the accomplishments that she continues to achieve are remarkable.”
