The series is set in New York City in 1986 and will highlight Carey’s rise to fame as a biracial 16-year-old girl, reportsĀ Deadline.com. The drama will follow the aspiring singer-songwriter as she survives a difficult childhood to become the biggest-selling female artist of all time.

This is far from Carey’s first time in the executive producer chair. Previously, she produced Mariah’s World, for E!. No word on when the new series will air.
