Ossian Media announced Monday that “House of Wallace” will feature 16-year-old C.J. Wallace and 19-year-old T’yanna Wallace. The Notorious B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace, was shot to death in 1997.
His character will appear in “spirit” and “guide them through the adversities they face” when trying to keep the Brooklyn studio open and out of a larger company’s hand.
The show has yet to sign with a network, though a representative for Ossian says “a few serious networks are in discussion.”
Notorious B.I.G.’s hits include “One More Chance,” “Hypnotize” and “Mo Money Mo Problems.”
The series will also feature guest appearances from other musical artists.
The announcement comes just days after the 16th anniversary of the still officially unsolved Los Angeles slaying of the Bad Boy rapper who was shot leaving a Soul Train Music Awards after party. No one has yet to be arrested in connection with the killing.
