DEMETRIUS "LIL MEECH" FLENORY OF "BMF" IN CONVERSATION WITH TANISHA LAVERNE GRANT (965 hits)


About BMF Series:

BMF (aka Black Mafia Family) is inspired by the true story of two brothers who rose from the decaying streets of southwest Detroit in the late 1980’s and gave birth to one of the most influential crime families in the country. Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory’s charismatic leadership, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory’s business acumen and the fraternal partnership’s vision beyond the drug trade and into the world of Hip Hop would render the brothers iconic on a global level. Their unwavering belief in family loyalty would be the cornerstone of their partnership and the crux of their eventual estrangement. This is a story about love, family, and capitalism in the pursuit of the American dream.


Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., the real-life son of the notorious cocaine kingpin and southwest Detroit legend, makes his acting debut starring as his father. Da’Vinchi (“All American,” “grown-ish”) stars as Terry “Southwest T” while Wood Harris (“Empire,” Creed) is in a recurring role as Pat and Russel Hornsby (Fences, The Hate U Give) plays Charles Flenory, the principled patriarch of the Flenory family, trying to keep his family on the right path and save Terry from the outsized ambition and influence of his older brother. Steve Harris (“The Practice,” Diary of a Mad Black Woman) plays Detective Bryant, a 20-year veteran of the Detroit Police Department, who has a longstanding relationship with Demetrius while Arkeisha “Kash Doll” Knight plays Monique, a strong single mom determined to give her daughter a better life.


The 8-episode series, which was filmed in Atlanta and Detroit, is executive produced by Detroit native Randy Huggins (“Star,” “Rebel,” “Power”) as well as Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, marking the fifth scripted show that the rapper and prolific producer has in the works at Starz as part of his multi-series overall deal. Along with Jackson and Huggins, Terri Kopp, Anthony Wilson and Anne Clements serve as executive producers. Tasha Smith (“Empire,” “Power,” Why Did I Get Married?) directed some of the episodes.
