WATCH: Tami Roman tackles the role of Lil Mama’s mother for TVOne’s ‘When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story’

Atlanta was rocked to its core a few years ago when Falicia Blakely made headlines for murdering three men in a one-night robbery spree on orders from her pimp. She was later sentenced to three consecutive life terms with no chance of parole and claims that her pimp had also infected her with HIV during their involvement.

The rest of her vivid tale of woe will soon be told through the lens of TVOne when ‘When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story’ premieres on August 28th. Get into the trailer below.

Based on a gripping true story, “When Love Kills” stars Lil Mama as Falicia Blakely, a young woman who gets caught up with the wrong man who leads her down a dangerous path of drugs, gun and more. At 16 and already a mother, Blakely is at odds with her mom (“Basketball Wives’” Tami Roman) and soon begins working at a strip club when she meets Dino (“House of Payne’s” Lance Gross), a man who she thinks is the man of her dreams.

Dino, however, is much more than he seems and soon pulls Falicia into a dangerous life of crime that changes everything she knows about herself. -When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story
