A television series on “Freeway” Rick Ross is in development.
The series is from Power executive producer Randall Emmett, George Furla, Antonio Moore and Neil Harrington.
It will be based on Freeway Rick Ross: The Untold Autobiography.
“The goal of this project is to be the definitive telling of how we got to a point where mass incarceration exploded. While it’s an honor to tell the story, it is also a responsibility to get this narrative correct. Those boys in hoods across America deserve to know the truth of how this all went down, of how they ended up in the position to play such a detrimental role in our community with this drug crack in their hands. Our team with Emmett Furla will tell that truth,” Moore told Shadow and Act.
Here is the official description of the autobiography: Freeway Rick Ross: The Untold Autobiography is an intimate look at the day-to-day dealings of a drug kingpin in the heart of the ghetto. It’s also the story of a boy born in poverty Texas who grew up in a single-parent household in the heart of South Central, who was pushed through the school system each year and came out illiterate. His options were few, and he turned to drug dealing. This Untold Autobiography is not only personal, but also historical in its implications. Rick Ross chronicles the times by highlighting the social climate that made crack cocaine so desirable, and he points out that at the time, the “cops in the area didn’t know what crack was; they didn’t associate the small white rocks they saw on homies as illegal drugs.” All Rick Ross knew was people wanted it.
This is the latest endeavor to get a project from Ross on-screen.
