VH1 Movie ‘The Breaks’ Gets Green Light to Become Series

If you were a fan of the VH1 movie, The Breaks, then you’ll love this news. The movie was just given the green light to become a series. You may remember the film left viewers with a cliff hanger and now we’ll be getting our dose of 90s hip-hop nostalgia on a weekly basis.

The Breaks centered on three friends in the early 90s New York who love hip hop and are doing everything it takes to make an impact on the industry, which at the time, is fairly new. It’s based on the best-seller by Dan Charnas, The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop.

VH1 General Manger, Chris McGarthy, said The Breaks was “VH1 at its best, intersecting ’90s nostalgia with hip-hop for the masses.”

He went on to say, “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.”

The film starred favorites from The Wire, Tristan “Mack” Wilds and Wood Harris, as well as Afton Williamson, David Call, Antoine Harris and Method Man.

Most of the cast is expected to return, even though final casting has not yet been announced.
