Earlier this month it was announced that Keke Palmer (as Chilli), Lil Mama (as Left Eye), and Drew Sidora (T-Boz) are set to portray TLC in VH1’s highly-anticipated biopic, “Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story.”
And with production just weeks away from beginning in Atlanta, the trio is already prepping for a rigorous schedule in an effort to emulate the Grammy Award-winning trio.
During last week's "ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood" luncheon, Palmer revealed a few details to celebrity gossip site, The YBF, about the film.
I'm going to fly out tonight to Atlanta and going to meet the girls some time this week. The first few of weeks were going to be doing a lot of choreography. I've already talked to Drew [Sidora] and Lil Mama, and were just going to get in there and do it. All of us are fans, so that gives it something. We want to do great because we want to represent who we love. This is exciting for me, this is a really huge deal.
“With this cast, we are thrilled with the talent assembled both in front of and behind the cameras,” Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of VH1's Original Programming and Production, said in a press release.
”TLC are truly music pioneers and this movie is a fantastic way to expand our scripted push by combining our audience’s passion for music with their love of story. We know our viewers will be eager to go beyond the headlines and into the surprisingly personal, never before told stories of these groundbreaking women,” Olde said.
Surviving members Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins are also among the film’s executive producers and consultants. Tentatively there is no set premiere date for “Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story.”
