Well this is exciting – Nicki Minaj is to star in a sitcom about her own life!

The* Anaconda* star is teaming up with ABC Family and* Sex Tape's* Kate Angelo to tell the story of her quirky upbringing.

The show, which we don’t know the name of yet, will take place in the ‘90s, when Nicki and her eccentric family moved from Trinidad and Tobago to the ever so different Queens, New York.

"This is one of the more unique adventures I've ever embarked on," the rapper told* Deadline.*

"I couldn't be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special."

Karey Burke from ABC Family also promised that Nicki’s life story will be both "inspiring and hilarious" for viewers.

This isn’t the first time Nicki’s had a go at acting – she voiced Steffie in* Ice Age: Continental Drift*, and is in upcoming movie*, Barbershop 3.* She also lent her voice to the animated series Steven Universe last year.
