The season premier of the new STARZ series “BMF” aired last night and many Detroiters are excited about the series. As many of us know, the series follows the Flenory brothers Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory, who is portrayed by his son Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr and his brother Terry “Southwest T’ Flenory, who is portrayed by Da’Vinchi and their creation of the Black Mafia Family, the notorious Southwest Detroit drug trafficking empire that they built in the late 80’s that was eventually brought down by law enforcement in the mid-2000s. The crime network eventually spread to 11 states and generated more than $270 million in profits.
The BMF series is touching a lot of Detroiters because many who were born around that time and lived in the Southwest, River Rouge, Ecorse area are getting a chance to relive the nostalgia and see this legendary Detroit story finally get told. Not only is this iconic Detroit story being told, but its giving some of our bright young talents like Detroit rapper Kash Doll, and Demetrius Flenory Jr a chance to showcase their acting talents.
Executive producer Curtis “50 Cent'” Jackson said that, “This didn’t happen overnight, this took us some time to get it right.” Jackson said he had to enroll Flenory Jr in acting classes in Los Angeles so he could take on the role of his father, Demetrius ‘Big Meech’ Flenory. Flenory Jr’s hard work and dedication to the role was on display last night during the premier. Detroit, what did you think about the season premier of BMF series?
