“It’s going to be a series, we’re planning to do an episodic type of a show,” she announced during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “[Teyana] is certainly a talented young lady with whom I’ve had the pleasure of interfacing. In fact, we had a conversation last night on the telephone. She’s very excited about the prospect of being involved and she’s also going to be very, very much involved in directing it and putting together parts and parcel of how we see this going.”
“Netflix is one of the places I’ve been looking at possibly doing it,” she explains. “They’re not the only place that we’re looking at but Netflix seems to be the leading episodic [platform] to do something similar to what I want to do. There’s a lot of very exciting stuff going on right now!”
