The new season will debut internationally on the Lionsgate+ premium streaming platform in the UK and Brazil. On linear, it will debut on Starz at 8:00 PM ET/PT in the U.S. and Canada.
Inspired by true Legends, season two of BMF chronicles the unconventional journey to success of the Flenory brothers, Demetrius Flenory “Big Meech” and Terry Flenory “Southwest Tee”, who rose from the depths of poverty, navigating the war on drugs in Detroit, and became game changers in hip-hop and culture.
Throughout the emotional season, the audience roots for the Flenory brothers during their pursuit of their American Dream, as they build a better life in a system that was stacked against them. The universal themes of family, faith and loyalty are explored both at home and on the streets. The brothers work to outmaneuver the government and expand BMF into a multi-state empire.
BMF stars Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the son of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, Da’Vinchi (The Way Back, grown-ish), Russell Hornsby (Fences, The Hate U Give), and Michole Briana White (Dead to Me, She Hate Me).
Also starring are Myles Truitt (Black Lightning, The New Edition doneStory), Steve Harris (The Practice, Diary of a Mad Black Woman), Kelly Hu (The Scorpion King, The Orville), and La La Anthony (The Chi, Think Like a Man).
The cast is rounded out by Detroit rapper Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight, Snoop Dogg (Training Day), Leslie Jones (Coming 2 America, Saturday Night Live), Christine Horn (Snowfall), Sydney Mitchell (First Wives Club), Rayan Lawrence (Underground), and Serayah (Empire, Favorite Son) in recurring roles and Mo’Nique (Precious, The Parkers) as a guest star.
In addition, Caresha “Yung Miami” Brownlee will make a guest appearance this season.
BMF is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson through his G-Unit film and television (Executive Producer of the Power Universe, For Life), alongside showrunner, executive producer, writer and Detroit native Randy Huggins (Star, Rebel, Power). Heather Zuhlke, Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements also serve as executive producers on the series.
BMF is produced through Jackson’s G-Unit Film and Television in association with Lionsgate Television for Starz. Costume designer Keia Bounds (Chappelle’s Show, Law & Order: Criminal Intent) transports the cast back into time with the fashion of the ’80s with a dynamic soundtrack from Derryck (Big Tank) Thornton (The Chi, Swagger, Greenleaf).
Senior Vice President of Original Programming Kathryn Tyus-Adair is the executive overseeing BMF on behalf of Starz. Erin Conroy is the executive overseeing the series on behalf of Lionsgate Television.
BMF returns for a second hit season and dramatizes the inspiring true story of two brothers Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory (Demetrius Flenory, Jr.) and Terry “Southwest T” Flenory (Da’Vinchi), who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late ’80s and gave birth to one of the most influential crime families in the country, Black Mafia Family.
BMF continues to humanize the choices of the brothers and their pursuit of the American Dream. Rooted in family, loyalty, and brotherhood, the series continues to explore the brothers’ complex familial relationships with their parents Charles Flenory (Russell Hornsby) and Lucille Flenory (Michole Briana White) who seek counsel from their spiritual advisor Pastor Swift (Snoop Dogg).
Rooted in authenticity and told with grit, heart, and humor, we parachute into the season with Meech and Terry at odds. Meech wants to expand the business beyond Detroit, yet Terry is no longer in the game and is focused on school and launching a legitimate car-ride service with his Pops.
As the season unfolds, the streets implode and the brothers risk losing everything. We find out what happens to Meech and Terry as they both seek to become stronger than ever and strategically execute a new vision.
Along the way, they meet and form an alliance with Goldie (Oscar-winner Mo’Nique), a sophisticated Atlanta strip club owner, who helps Meech forge his future. As the brothers reflect on their wins, little do they know that their new beginnings will also be plagued with new obstacles.
