VH1 has listened to their viewer’s eyes and are putting forth the effort to make their 90s Hip Hop-themed The Breaks a household name. The made-for-TV movie which was based off of Dan Charnas’ The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop and premiered in Januaryin 2.6 million homes, has now been ordered for a full series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Viacom put the plan in motion earlier today (February 16) although an episode tally hasn’t been devised as of yet.
“The Breaks’ is VH1 at its best, intersecting ’90s nostalgia with hip-hop for the masses,” VH1 GM Chris McCarthy tells THR. “Both the viewers and critics have spoken, and we couldn’t be happier to continue telling the story that has already connected with millions of pop culture fans.”
