VH1 released the trailer for its new show, “Single Ladies” over the weekend and it looks promising!
“Single Ladies”, which is the network’s first scripted show (amen!), stars LisaRaye McCoy, Stacy Dash, Charity Shea, and DB Woodside and is produced by Queen Latifah’s production company, Flavor Unit Entertainment.
Originally shot in the summer of 2010, “Single Ladies” was set to be released as a film, however, VH1 liked it so much, they picked it up as an hour-long dramedy.
According to VH1, the series will be a “Sex & the City” style show set in Atlanta.
“Single Ladies is a comedic drama about Val, Keisha, and April – three best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships. Val ( Stacey Dash) is an ambitious aspiring fashion mogul who wants to find a true partner. Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy), on the other hand, is a former video dancer just looking for a rich man to keep her in style. April (Charity Shea) has supposedly found the perfect man and the perfect marriage – but is learning that marriage isn’t necessarily a happy ending. Single Ladies is a modern, sexy series set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity that will constantly explore which woman has the right approach to relationships.”
Common, Kim Porter, Chilli, Eve, Lauren London, and Executive producer Queen Latifah will make appearances on the show which will kick-off with a two-hour series premiere in May.
With shows like “Basketball Wives,” “What Chili Wants,” and “Lets Talk About Pep,” VH1 has been trying hard to produce (reality) shows that appeal to Black women. Let’s hope this new one is worth our time.
