Drama, Anthology, Music
Hip-hop record producer Irv "Gotti" Lorenzo redefines the music genre in a completely new way for television. "Tales," described by BET as a scripted anthology series of "song stories," uses lyrics of classic and current hip-hop songs and reimagines them into mini-movies, each featuring a unique director, including Gotti's directorial debut, screenwriter and cast. Cuts like Notorious B.I.G.'s "I Got a Story to Tell," Meek Mill's "Cold Hearted" and Fetty Wap's "Trap Queen" serve as a tale's thematic backdrop, taking viewers on an adventure into some of the stories that have inspired iconic hip-hop hits.
