According to Shadow and Act, TV One unveiled its 2017/2018 programming slate during its annual upfronts presentation in NYC, which included The Xscape Biopic coming to TV ONE. The film is inspired by the R&B group’s epic episode of “Unsung.” “Who Can I Run To: The Xscape Story” and is set to premiere in 2017-2018.
This original film is based on the story of 90s R&B quartet Xscape, whose rise to fame and group implosion was told on an episode of TV One’s award-winning docu-series, Unsung. Comprised of sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott, and classmates Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, the R&B quartet formed a sisterhood as strong as their sound, recording the #1 hits “Just Kickin’ It,” “Understanding” and “Who Can I Run To?” Since their breakup in 1998, attempts to reunite the group have failed with lingering bitterness and deep seeded anger playing out on public forums. The film is being produced in partnership with legendary music producer and So So Def founder Jermaine Dupri, the label that produced Xscape’s three platinum albums.
