Lifetime has released the trailer to the upcoming Salt-N-Pepa biopic.
Lifetime has been on a roll producing biopics on R&B groups and pop diva’s like Toni Braxton, Whitney Houston and Aaliyah. Their most recent movie, The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel is now the networks highest rated movie in the last four years.
Needless to say it was a smart movie to debut the Salt-N-Pepa miniseries while 2.7 million people were watching the Clark Sisters.
From the look of the trailer the series will follow the story of Queensborough Community College students Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton as they fall into the world of rap and hip hop, after recording for a song for their friend Hurby Azor.
The three-hour limited series stars G.G. Townson and Laila Odom, who will be playing “Salt” and “Pepa” respectively. Additionally Cleveland Berto will star as music producer Hurby Azor, Jermel Howard as rapper Treach and Monique Paul as DJ Spinderella.
It will also feature Salt-N-Pepa’s greatest hits, including “Let’s Talk About Sex,” “What a Man,” “Shoop” and “Push It,” among others.
Folks on Twitter were super hype about the movie but were also quick to point out none of the actresses resemble the actual group members.

We’re still going to tune in since Queen Latifah is one of the executive producers along with James and Denton. Mario Van Peebles is also directing the film, so you know it’s going to be good.
As previously reported James and Denton have been embroiled in a nasty legal battle with Spinderella real name Deidra Roper who sued the ladies for unpaid royalties. She also requested a restraining order.
