Carey's manager, Stella Bulochnikov, first hinted about the project back in January, when she revealed that Mariah's World wasn't the only television show on Mimi's gilded plate. "We have a secret project," Bulochnikov told Entertainment Tonight. "We do have a scripted drama that we are developing that has not been announced about Mariah's life that's going to be incredibly poignant."
