Irv Gotti has teamed up with BET network to produce TALES, a 60 minute scripted anthology series of “short stories” transforming hip songs into visually stunning 3-act narratives.
According to the press release by BET:
“‘TALES’ brings hip-hop alive in a completely new way for television. With “TALES”, each song’s lyrics are imagined as cinematic adventures with a different director and screenwriter per song story.”
This series will be in collaboration with TIDAL where the directors cut version of each episode will live on TIDAL exclusively after premiering on BET. Gotti calls TALES and working with TIDAL a “dream project”.
When asked about TALES, Gotti demonstrated his excitement by stating:
“We’re going to bring together hip-hop and scripted television in a way that has never been seen before. We’re locking in some of the most iconic songs from the biggest artists in the world and pairing them with the hottest names in TV production. And I want my hip-hop nation to be ready to be entertained every week.”
