Starz has set a fall premiere for its upcoming crime drama series, BMF (fka Black Mafia Family). BMF tells the story of the real-life, American crime family: The Flenorys, set in 1980s Detroit. Produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, it will premiere worldwide on Sunday, Sept. 26 at 9 p.m. before moving to its regular timeslot of 8 p.m. on Oct. 3

Here’s the description: BMF is inspired by the true story of two brothers who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980s and gave birth to one of the most influential crime families in this country. Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory’s charismatic leadership, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory’s business acumen and the fraternal partnership’s vision beyond the drug trade and into the world of hip-hop would render the brothers iconic on a global level. Their unwavering belief in family loyalty would be the cornerstone of their partnership and the crux of their eventual estrangement. This is a story about love, kinship and capitalism in the pursuit of the American dream.
