“BMF” trailer for Season 2: Starz series is postponed to Friday
The Starz series about the Black Mafia Family has released its second season trailer.
“BMF,” the Starz drama about the rise of the Black Mafia Family, will return for Season 2 on January 6, Starz announced Friday. The series, which previously premiered new episodes on Sundays, premium cable’s biggest night, has been moved to Friday, where it will air linearly at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT and be available on-demand at midnight. Starz has released a trailer for the upcoming season which can be viewed below.
Set in Detroit in the late ’80s and early ’90s, “BMF” tells the true story of Demetrius and Terry Flenory, founders of the Black Mafia Family, a drug trafficking and money laundering organization active from 1989 to 2005. Using hop label BMF Entertainment as a cover for their illicit dealings, the two brothers — aka “Big Meech” and “Southwest T” — managed to build a cocaine distribution network across the United States and made around $270 million before he was 30 years old is imprisoned. Season 2 will focus on the brothers as they continue to grow their businesses, enter the hip-hop business and grow the Black Mafia Family into the multi-state empire they were destined to become.
Demetrius Flenory Jr., the son of Demetrius Flenory, plays his father in the series, while Da’Vinchi plays Terry Flenory. Several hit rappers appear in recurring roles on the series, including Snoop Dogg, Lil Zane, Detroit rapper Kash Doll and City Girls’ Yung Miami in a guest appearance in Season 2. The show also stars Russell Hornsby, Michole Briana White, Myles Truitt, Steve Harris, Kelly Hu, and La La Anthony. Other returning actors in season two include “SNL” star Leslie Jones, Christine Horn, Sydney Mitchell, Rayan Lawrence and Serayah. Eminem guest-starred as White Boy Rick in Season 1.
“BMF” is produced by rapper 50 Cent through his G-Unit film and television banner, who also produces the popular TV franchise “Power” for Starz. Randy Huggins, who also worked on “Power,” is doing showruns and executive producing the series. Heather Zuhlke, Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements are also executive producers.
Traditionally, moving a show to Fridays has been something of a death sentence for linear TV shows, the final destination before cancellation. That’s all changed somewhat in the streaming age, however, with many streamers now debuting their shows on Fridays for fans to enjoy throughout the weekend. In this fragmented and on-demand world, windows of time have never played less of a role.
