About STARZ BMF:Details for the series have not been officially released. However, it is rumored it will be based on the real Black Mafia Family.
The Black Mafia Family was a drug trafficking organization based in Detroit, Michigan by brothers Demetrius and Terry Flenory. By 2000, they had an established drug distribution across the United States with direct links to Mexican-based drug cartels.
BMF established two main hubs for their operations including Atlanta, Georgia and Los Angeles, California. By the early 2000s, the organization tried to legitimize themselves by entering the music business by starting BMF Entertainment. Through BMF Entertainment, they would promote artists including Fabolous and Young Jeezy and associate with high-profile artists including E40, Trina, Shawty Lo, and Jay Z.
In 2005, the Drug Enforcement Administration indicted members of the Black Mafia Family. The Flenory brothers were sentenced to 30 years in prison. Over 150 members of the organization received subsequent indictments. Prosecutors claimed the organization made over $270 million.
