July 18 (UPI) -- Starz is developing a fictional drama series based on the life of Mariah Carey.
The series will follow the rise of a bi-racial 16-year-old singer who lives in New York City in 1986 as she becomes the highest-selling female artist of all-time, Deadline reported.
The pop star was recently the subject of an E! reality series titled Mariah's World that documented the singer as she prepared for a European tour and planned her wedding to ex-fiancee James Packer.
Carey has also previously guest-starred on Fox's music drama Empire.
