The rapper announced during his Friday performance at BigBoyTV YouTube channel that the film, a semi-autographic snapshot of Eminem’s life, has a TV show that is “in motion.”

“I’ll take his 8 miles for TV,” he revealed, adding that Eminem, 50, is on board to help with the show’s production.

“It’s gonna be big. I’m working. I ain’t got no duds. I’m hitting 100,” the 47-year-old rapper said after being asked about the show. “I think it should be there for his legacy because it’s important to me that they understand that.”

According to the rapper, the project will provide a “backstory” to the film and show Eminem’s younger years. He also expressed a desire for the show to share Eminem’s story with a new audience.

The film’s story was last revisited in 2020 when Eminem, who won Best Original Song at the 2003 Academy Awards for “Lose Yourself” from the film’s soundtrack, appeared at the 2020 Academy Awards to perform the anthem. The performance came after Eminem missed the awards ceremony, where he took home the win.

Most nominees usually perform their songs on stage, but Eminem skipped the ceremony altogether in 2003. Instead, the Detroit rapper dozed in his Michigan home with the TV set to cartoons for his daughter, Hailie, Detroit Free Press reported at the time.

The rapper had previously decided to sit out the ceremony, deciding it was “not his kind of concert,” the paper noted. As a result, Barbra Streisand ended up presenting the golden statuette for “Lose Yourself” to co-writer Luis Resto.

“Look if you had another shot, another chance… Thanks for having me @theacademy. Sorry it took me 18 years to get here,” Eminem wrote on Instagram, sharing a clip of Resto accepting the award without him.
