Synopsis

Baby ft's You! Is inspired by the true story of Florence Greenberg, the woman who changed the recording world forever.

Before Motown and the British Invasion, Greenberg took the male-dominated music industry by storm, revolutionising pop music and becoming the most influential and successful female record company president ever.

After discovering one of the greatest girl-groups of all time, The Shirelles, at her daughter's high school, Greenberg packed the girls in her car, drove across the George Washington Bridge to New York City, and embarked on a trail blazing journey from New Jersey housewife to record mogul, creating the independent house of hits that was Scepter Records.
