Project Casting

Casting directors are now seeking talent for various positions in the upcoming TLC Biopic.

Recently, CL Casting, the Extras Casting Company that has casted in such films as 42: The Jackie Robinson Story, The Internship, The Watch, and currently, Anchorman 2.

Now the extremely hardworking casting company is working on the upcoming TLC Biopic which will be filming in Atlanta, Georgia. The feature film is a VH1 biopic of platinum selling girl group TLC.

Recently, The LA Times recently reported that rapper and VMA stage crasher Lil Mama, Keke Palmer and actress/sing Drew Sidora are going to play the groundbreaking R&B/hip-hop/pop trio illustrating and portraying the fiery interpersonal drama and amazing talent.

“I would sing ‘No Scrubs’ over and over again to the point my parents would have to tell me to stop, but I never did, I had my little hairbrush as my mic and nobody could tell me I wasn’t the fourth member of TLC,” Palmer said in a statement announcing her casting. Lil Mama, the rambunctious voice behind “Lip Gloss” and judge of MTV’s “America’s Best Dance Crew,” will take on the role of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in a car crash in Honduras in 2002. Palmer (“Akeela & the Bee”) is tapped to portray Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, and Sidora will play Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins (LA Times).

 

The TLC Biopic is a first out of a series of music biopics the VH1 network is currently producing. The TLC biopic is produced by Watkins and Thomas. Kate Lanier wrote the screenplay for the TLC Biopic and previously worked on “What’s Love Got to Do With It,” and “Beauty Shop”.

This is definitely going to be a big project since the platinum selling girl group has made major impacts with such hit songs as “Waterfalls,” and “No Scrubs”.
