The Flyy Girl books are a coming-of-age story that explores the journey of a woman motivated by the material life who plunges into a fast-paced world of sex, violence and heartbreak in an attempt to find herself during the hip-hop era. In her journey, she is forced to reinvent herself and rethink her relationships, and her career. The series has grossed more than $30 million and was first published in 1997. Academy Award-Winning screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher who wrote the script for ‘Precious’ will be writing this script as well.

“I’m pleased to executive produce and star in Lionsgate and Codeblack’s incredible adaptation of Omar Tyree’s iconic Flyy Girl trilogy. So many people have grown up on this series and I’m looking forward to bringing Tracy Ellison’s story to life through film. It’s my hope to continue to help bring diverse stories to the big screen.” said Lathan.

The book Flyy Girls synopsis reads: “In FLYY GIRL, Omar follows Tracy Ellison, a young girl with light brown hair, slanted hazel eyes, tall hair and plenty of attitude as she comes of age during the hip-hop era. Motivated by the material life, Tracy, her friends, and the young men who will do anything to get next to them are plunged into a world of violence, gratuitous sex, and heartbreak. Slowly, Tracy begins to examine her life, her goals, and her sexuality – as she evolves from Flyy Girl into a woman.”
