“The BMF Documentary: Blowing Money Fast” is a limited event, half-hour episodic documentary series about the infamous Black Mafia Family, as told by former members, insiders, associates, and celebrity figures close to the family. From Detroit corner boys, to notorious drug kingpins, and hip hop kingmakers, the eight-part docuseries will chart the meteoric rise and fall of BMF founders: Demetrius “Big Meech” and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, two brothers who built one of the largest cocaine empires in American history. The fabled story spans four decades across five major U.S. cities, immersing viewers in a network of crisscrossing relationships between crime, hip hop, and law enforcement.
The series affords viewers exclusive access inside all the epic family feuds, high stakes drug deals, suspicious murders, and champagne drenched parties attended by hip-hop royalty. The docuseries comes on the heels of STARZ’s scripted drama series “BMF,” a multi-season drama that addressed the early Detroit years in its first season. The docuseries will cover the full arc of the BMF story, from the Flenory family’s rise in the early ‘80s in Detroit, through the peak years during the late 90’s and early aughts, to the end of their reign in 2006, up to present day.
The format combines Jigsaw Production’s award-winning non-fiction storytelling with exclusive access to the Flenory Brothers and former BMF members facilitated by G-Unit Film & Television, while journalists and consultants close to the key players provide the production authenticity, historical, and cultural context. Additionally, the series will feature exclusive interviews, never-before-seen archival footage, original vérité footage, celebrity interviews and original impressionistic imagery inspired by first-hand accounts.
