Rapper Diggy Simmons will be heading to BET, according to Deadline Hollywood. This time, for his own show...sans the rest of his fam. The network has picked up an "Untitled Diggy Simmons Project" headed up by the fire-hot writing/directing/production team of Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil.
The Diggy Simmons scripted project is described as a fresh and edgy look at 17-year-old Diggy Simmons, his life as a blogger, and the close group of loyal friends he has. He'll play the main character Blake and Teyana Taylor will play his ex. Of course. Bria Murphy has also been cast on the show as the girlfriend (Nia) of one of the characters. It is being set up as an initial 2-hour mini movie that has the possibility of going to series.
Kevin Liles is co-executive producing. Diggy is such a cutie!
