Dionne Warwick says a sequence about her life is within the works and Teyana Taylor could also be concerned
It looks like we will soon be able to see the story of the legendary Dionne Warwick on our screens in the form of a limited series. During a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dionne revealed that the series is currently in the works.
Last December, Dionne posted a video clip of herself and asked her followers if they would see her if she did a series. She posted the video on her Twitter account and said, “This is a case for Netflix. Please don’t ask who I would cast to play me as it would obviously be Teyana Taylor. “

Netflix responded to Dionne to let her know they were taking notes, and Teyana even posted the exchange on her Instagram, saying, “When the LEGENDARY @therealdionnew had that moment with @netflix and they started jotting notes in their palm pilots … i looked at her likeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. “
“[Teyana] is certainly a talented young lady that I have had the pleasure of working with. In fact, we had a conversation on the phone last night, ”said Dionne. “She’s very excited about the prospect of getting involved, and she’s going to be very, very involved in directing and putting together parts of how we see this.”
While there isn’t yet a place for the set in stone series, Dionne went on to say that Netflix is a place she certainly considered.
She said, “Netflix is one of the places I’ve been looking for opportunities. They aren’t the only place we go, but Netflix seems to be the leading episode [platform] to do something similar to what I want to do. A lot of very exciting things are going on right now. “
Last month, Lil Kim also mentioned that Teyana should also portray her in a project.
