SUNDAY: The premium cabler has found its niche in urban melodrama. Following the first-season finale of Power prequel Power Book III: Raising Kanan (8/7c), in which Raquel (Patina Miller) goes to great lengths to keep her teenage son Kanan (MeKai Curtis) out of harm’s way, Starz premieres a fact-based drama, executive produced like Power by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, about a ruling “BMF” (Black Mafia Family) in 1980s Detroit. In an intriguing twist, the central character of Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory is played by his son, Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory Jr., with Da’Vinchi as brother Terry “Southwest T” Flenory, who together expand their drug empire into the world of hip hop. Co-stars include Russell Hornsby, Steve Harris and Snoop Dogg as Pastor Swift.
