A new series is in the works at BET+ inspired by Chris “Ludacris” Bridges’ journey as a radio DJ in Atlanta. 

Before he became a platinum-selling recording artist and star of the hit movie franchise, Fast & Furious, Ludacris began his ascension to fame over the Atlanta airwaves as DJ Chris Lova Lova.

The half-hour BET+ dramedy, written by Noah Gardenswartz, will be set in the competitive music in Atlanta and will follow the misadventures of a sharply dawn ensemble who are willing to do anything and everything to bolster ratings at their hip-hop radio station. 

Ludacris, Malcolm D. Lee (“The Best Man: The Final Chapters”), Larry Wilmore (“Reasonable Doubt”), and Chaka Zulu are set to executive produce the series.
