Half Yard Productions, a division of Red Arrow Studios, has partnered with hip hop mogul Rick Ross on a docuseries that will spotlight New Jersey’s Fronzaglia family.
The untitled series will document the Fronzaglia family, led by Alisa Maria, Dejroune, Milan and Joe “The Crane” Fronzaglia, as they navigate through the Garden State’s social and business communities. The family’s eldest daughter Dejroune or “Dej” is in an emerging relationship with the Miami-based Rick Ross, born William Leonard Roberts II, who is also set to star in the series.
The project will serve as the first title under Ross’ recently launched Lucky Bastard Media Corp. production banner and will be developed by Half Yard’s head of development Dirk Hoogstra.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with such a living legend in the hip hop industry as Rick Ross,” said Hoogstra in a statement. “Developing a docuseries that features Rick in his first TV series alongside the extraordinary Fronzaglia family, promises to be factual entertainment television at its best.”
Led by CEO Sean Gallagher, Half Yard Productions produces such factual and fact-ent programming as TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress — currently in its 19th season — and spin-off Say Yes to the Dress America, plus I Found the Gown and Randy to the Rescue, all for TLC, as well as The Last Alaskans for Discovery, Relatively Evil for Investigation Discovery and Say Yes to the Nest for HGTV.
