Ludacris Getting His Own BET Series Inspired By DJ Beginnings

Ludacris has been confirmed to be getting his own series on BET that will be inspired by his DJ beginnings.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the currently untitled project is set to be a 30-minute dramedy based on Luda’s early career as DJ Chris Lova Lova in Atlanta.

The outlet says “the series follows the misadventures of a sharply drawn ensemble who are willing to do anything and everything to bolster ratings at their hip hop radio station.”

Luda is on board as a producer and will also act as music supervisor on the show.

Comedian Noah Gardenswartz, best known for his work on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, will write the show with Larry Wilmore, Malcolm D. Lee and Luda’s manager Chaka Zulu also on board as producers.

The project comes under the Universal banner with whom Ludacris has a 20-year relationship thanks to the Fast & Furious series.

The “Act a Fool” rapper first played Tej Parker in 2003’s 2 Fast 2 Furious and has since reprised the character in six more installments.

Luda has been busy on the TV front lately. He was recently confirmed as one of the new hosts of Netflix’s Rhythm & Flow alongside DJ Khaled and Latto.

The Atlanta rap legend also recently teased his return to music having not released an album since 2015’s Ludaversal.

Speaking to BET in November, he said: “Yeah, some music projects will be coming out next year. I don’t wanna fake, I don’t wanna stutter-step. I don’t wanna be like [André] 3000 and say, ‘I got an album coming out.’

“I don’t know. It’s definitely some music coming next year, but I don’t know if it’s like an EP or an LP. We’re going to figure it out.”

Luda admitted his lack of music over the last decade was down to being committed to other projects.

“These movie projects like Fast & Furious and doing a lot of things like the Karma’s World project that’s on Netflix — you know, doing other art forms where I’m creative, where I’m putting my heart into that — I want to make sure that I leave a legacy on this earth. So it was just taking a step back and getting hungry again, living some life,” he explained.

“‘Cause when you put out music, in order for it to be organic and real, you gotta talk about what goes on in your life. So if I had like nine consistent albums, sometimes you gotta take a step back and live some life so that you have a lot more to talk about and that’s what I was doing.”
