BabyfaceEdmonds Producing 90’s Music Dramedy Series
Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds has landed a scripted music series about the booming New York City music scene in the 1990’s. The songwriter and music producer is partnering with Electus for the hourlong dramedy.
The untitled series is developed by and based on the lives of award-winning songwriter and record-producer Damon Sharpe (whose credits include Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Pitbull, Nelly, etc.) and actress and former Warner Brothers/Ruffnation Records recording artist and producer Stacy Asencio-Sutphen. The pair met in New York in the 1990s when they both were aspiring pop stars. The potential series
focuses on a 20-something aspiring singer-songwriter who works a day job at a major music cable network. Despite a lack of support of her artistic dreams from friends and family, she harnesses undeniable talent and natural business savvy to try and make a name for herself in the music industry – at a time when the digital revolution began to change everything. The series will guide audiences through the nostalgic musical era, its eccentric personalities and larger-than-life icons, with plenty of comedic bumps along the way.
Electus CEO Chris Grant, President John Pollak, COO Drew Buckley and Justin Steger executive produce. Edmonds serves as executive producer and music supervisor.
