Our girl Angie Martinez has inked an epic deal to create scripted and unscripted content with Endemol Shine North America. She made the announcement as a guest co-host on FOX daytime talk show, The Real, teasing to make sure we tune in to watch out for her major announcement. Angie also announced that she is in the final stages of optioning her memoir, My Voice, and she is in the process of doing a documentary with Tidal. With Angie just hitting her 46th birthday the other day, this is a major milestone for Angie’s career.

Founded in 2012, Endemol Shine North America’s productions include The Biggest Loser, Master Chef, The office and Ugly Betty. Previously, when Angie was still at Hot 97, she shied away from the cameras on their one-season VH1 show, This is Hot 97. In her memoir, she mentioned that she didn’t like the scripted content for the show and felt it was no good. This is also around the time Angie was planning her switch to Power 105.1. As an important piece of urban and hip-hop culture, I am very intrigued about her ideas and for her future collaborations with the company. This is huge! Congrats Angie!
