Nicki Minaj is heading back to the small screen with a starring role in Lady Danger, a new animated series from Amazon Freevee, Deadline reports. 

Minaj, whose full name is Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty, will also executive produce the series alongside Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson under his G-Unit Film & TV production company. Other EPs include Brian Sher, Paul Young and Mike Griffin.

Lady Danger is based on the Dark Horse comic book series of the same name written by Alex de Campi. The animated version will be set in the future — the year 2075 — and “follows a government field agent who is left for dead by her team after discovering a dangerous secret, only to be resurrected as Lady Danger, an afrofuturistic a**-kicking Agent of B.O.O.T.I — Bureau of Organized Terrorism Intervention — who must conceal her true identity while she fights villains who are destroying the earth and its vulnerable inhabitants,” per the outlet. 

It’s unclear when the series is expected to air.
