Meek Mill is producing a new documentary about his life for Netflix - but we hear that the production is not going to well. Actually MTO News spoke with one former producer who describes the production as a "SH*T SHOW".
Here's what we heard from a producer:
Meek’s project is a nightmare. They’ve been hiring and replacing people daily because it’s such a sh*t show. No one has been paid in over two months and won’t touch it when they call. So they’ve taken advantage, particularly of Women Of Color filmmakers, who they call and admonish, saying he didn’t want White men on his crew, only to run them over and not pay.
Well they definitely HAVE the budget to pay. MTO News learned that Netflix is paying almost $3 MILLION to Meek and his team to produce the show.
Here's more tea from the disgruntled director:
They’ve been reported to have dangerous film sets, trying to show off bikes and helicopters, with no regard for the safety of those filming them. So basically he’s taking advantage of Black women, not paying them and endangering them with his antics.
According to a report from Variety:
The six-part docu series is targeted to premiere in 2019. Philadelphia-based rapper Robert Rihmeek Williams was released from jail last month after serving nearly five months for a probation violation — for popping a wheelie in an Instagram video without wearing a helmet.
The docu series will chronicle Mill’s rise to fame and his 10-year battle with Philadelphia judge Genece Brinkley, as well as the larger issue of high incarceration rates for people of color. Roc Nation is producing the untitled project with the Intellectual Property Corp. and docu filmmaker Isaac Solotaroff.
