Which makes me guess the show will be called "YAAAASSSS KWEENZ!"

ABC Family is thrilled to have Minaj as an executive producer and to appear in the series. The company said, "Nicki is an international superstar, yet not everyone knows how inspiring and hilarious her true story is."

Her Minajesty is from an immigrant family and moved to New York from Trinidad and Tobago when she was 5.

Before she was an international rap superstar with bars harder than the boys, she studied acting at LaGuardia High School in Manhattan and landed roles in "The Other Woman," "Barbershop 3" and a stint on "Saturday Night Live" when she impersonated Kim Kardashian.
