Whoopi Goldberg will guest star as Nickis neighbor, Miss Martha. Minaj is executive producer and will also appear in the show.

“Nicki Minaj is a force to be reckoned with at everything she touches,” said Karey Burke, Executive Vice President of Programming and Development at ABC Family. “Were beyond thrilled to bring her one-of-a-kind story to our channel. Nicki is an international superstar, yet not everyone knows how inspiring and hilarious her true story is, and we cant wait to share it with the world.”

“This is one of the more unique adventures Ive ever embarked on,” Nicki said in a release. “I couldnt be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”
