It looks like Salt-N-Pepa will finally be getting the biopic they deserve!

Lifetime plans on making a miniseries about the iconic rap group, which will be executive produced by none other than fellow femcee Queen Latifah.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Salt-N-Pepa will follow the story of nursing students Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton as they navigate the hip-hop landscape following their first recording experience with a friend’s school project.

It’s also being reported that the miniseries will incorporate some of the group’s biggest hits such as “Let’s Talk About Sex,” “What a Man” and our personal favorite“Shoop.”

Not many details have been released about the film and no one has been cast quite yet, Variety noted. But in addition to Queen, James, Denton, Jesse Collins and Shakim Compere are also executive producers.

And folks here clearly here for this news:
