Lifetime will be exploring early female hip-hop pioneers with a new scripted miniseries about none other than Salt-N-Pepa, the network announced Wednesday.
The miniseries, simply titled Salt-N-Pepa, will follow the story of nursing students Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton as they navigate the hip-hop landscape following their first recording experience with a friend’s school project.
Lifetime has not yet announced casting, but the real-life James and Denton are involved in the project as executive producers (alongside Jesse Collins, Queen Latifah, and Shakim Compere, among others).
With platinum albums, a Grammy and a string of such hits as Push It, Let's Talk About Sex, Shoop and Whatta Man, Salt-N-Pepa were not only a breakthrough female hip-hop group but also one of the biggest acts of the '90s.
