With Disney set to host its Upfront event next week, ABC has announced that it has ordered a full series of “Queens”.
The series is about four women in their 40’s, who reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as the Nasty Bitches—their ‘90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world.
Queens stars Eve as Brianna aka Professor Sex, Naturi Naughton as Jill aka Da Thrill, Nadine Velazquez as Valeria aka Butter Pecan, Taylor Selé as Eric Jones, Pepi Sonuga as Lil Muffin and Brandy as Naomi aka Xplicit Lyrics.
Zahir McGhee, Sabrina Wind and Tim Story are executive producers for “Queens”.
The series is produced by ABC Signature, so will be heading to Hulu and ABC in the United States, while internationally in the UK, Australia and Canada, it should be released on Disney+ as a Star Original.
The pilot episode was written by Zahir McGhee and directed by Tim Story.
