Nicki Minaj, the Grammy-nominated rapper, is all set to take on the lead role in the upcoming animated series Lady Danger while also serving as its executive producer alongside Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson for his G-Unit Film & Television production company. The show is based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name by Alex de Campi.
Lady Danger, written by executive producers Carlton Jordan and Crystle Roberson, is set in the year 2075 and follows a government field agent betrayed by her team after discovering a dangerous secret. The agent is resurrected as Lady Danger, an agent of the Bureau of Organized Terrorism Intervention (B.O.O.T.I), who must keep her true identity hidden while stopping villains from destroying the world. The series, which Starburns Industries will animate, is slated to debut on Amazon Freevee.

In the comments, Nicki replied, “Big BIG Queens s_t…They want action? Tell mine cause a scene (clapperboard emoji) fully active.”
While this marks her debut as a lead voice actor, Nicki has previously lent her voice to characters in Ice Age: Continental Drift and The Angry Birds Movie 2 and appeared on-screen in The Other Woman and Barbershop: The Next Cut.
