DEADLINE is reporting that Tip “T.I.” Harris is starring in and producing a new musical drama titled Glow Up. The film will be produced alongside Robbie Brenner, PepsiCo’s Creators League Kevin McKeon and T.I.’s producing partner Brian Shear. It will be directed by Justin Francis and is written by Netflix’s Dear White People writer Chuck Hayward.
Glow Up follows the lives and struggles of an all-girl high school performance group at an underfunded Los Angeles United School District school, who use their talents to try and save their financially-strapped music program by competing in a national singing competition with a huge cash prize. But when the group’s leader can no longer participate, they struggle to see how their charismatic, yet unconventional, new lead singer can shepherd them to the height of their dreams.
RC will keep you posted as this project continues to develop. Look for T.I. to reprise his role in Disney/Marvel’s upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp this summer.
