And the reality TV trend continues to flourish…
BET recently announced that the network is adding four new reality TV shows to diversify programming that also includes scripted shows like “The Game,” and “Being Mary Jane.”
The most highly anticipated of the reality shows is “Hip Hop Sisters” which stars MC Lyte, Yo Yo, Lil Mama, The Lady of Rage, Smooth and Monie Love as they each try to relaunch their careers.
The network offered the below description on the new program:
HIP HOP SISTERS is a docudrama following the relaunch of six female rappers’ careers. MC Lyte, The Lady of Rage, Yo Yo, Smooth, Monie Love and Lil Mama join forces and declare themselves the Hip Hop Sisters. Their goal is to reclaim their titles as the Queens of Hip Hop — as they manage their drama-filled personal careers and lives and search for the next great female MC. MC Lyte joins Lemuel Plummer (Vindicated, The Sheards) as executive producer.
Like “R&B Divas,” “Hip Hop Sisters,” can provide viewers with an unprecedented look behind-the-scenes of the music industry and give them a clearer understanding of what it takes to sustain a career as an entertainer. It will also be great to see some of our favorite old school rappers, from MC Lyte to The Lady of Rage, back in the spotlight again.
