What Is BMF About?
BMF is inspired by the real American story of two brothers who ran the Black Mafia Family in Southwest Detroit. The two brothers, the charismatic ringleader Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and the much more business-savvy Terry “Southwest T.” Flenory, have not only built a well-known drug trafficking business but have also become hip-hop icons. Rooted in “love, family, and capitalism in pursuit of the American dream,” BMF follows the brothers’ partnership as their family loyalty is tested while they pursue their risky goals.

What Was Production Like for BMF?
Randy Huggins made BMF, and Curtis Jackson, better known as the famous rapper, actor, and businessman 50 Cent, was in charge of it. People heard that Jackson was making the show in July 2019, but it wasn’t until April 2020 that Starz gave the show the green light. The main filming started in January 2021, and most of it happened in Atlanta and Detroit, which are where the original Black Mafia Family lived. The first season premiered on September 26, 2021, and the second season is set to come out on January 6, 2023.
Trailer for BMF Season 2
From the trailer, it looks like the brothers will make a lot more money, but in their line of work, that implies more trouble is on the way. See for yourself by watching the clip.
The most powerful part of a show like this ought to be the story, which is the most real and has all the elements of a riveting crime saga. But BMF works better because of the actors than because of the screenplay, which has more talking and less action. Demetrius “Meech” Flenory is played by his real-life son, Demetrius “Lil’ Meech” Flenory Jr., who is a great actor and makes his father’s story come to life on screen.
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, the show’s executive producer, made a good choice when he cast him along with the remainder of the all-black cast, which fits well with the story. Terry is Meech’s younger brother. Da’Vinchi plays “Southwest T” with a lot of heart. Women don’t have a lot of freedom here, but they do have interesting roles. As the boys’ mother, Michole Briana White, Sydney White as Terry’s girlfriend, and Ajiona Alexus as Kato all make an impression.
BMF does a good job of telling the story of the infamous Flenory brothers, for whom the story will be familiar to many people who lived through the turbulent 1980s and the sordid story of mafia dons around the world in the 2000s. In that way, the source material is perfect for making good TV. But there is a huge amount of information that needs to be processed and put into the show, and not every single one of it is binge-worthy.
