First there were the Osbournes, the Hogans, and the Kardashians. Now the Norwoods are set to join the roster of famous reality families by starring in their own television show.
The superstar siblings will appear in the VH1 reality program “Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business,” along with their parents, entertainment manager and mother Sonja and musical father Willie Norwood. The one-hour, 11-episode series will give viewers a first-hand glimpse into the lives of the Norwood family and their family business, Rn’B Productions.
Run by Sonja, Rn’B Productions features a roster of musical artists including Brandy, Ray J, and their father Willie, who also serves as the company’s vocal coach. But with Sonja ready to take a step down, Brandy and Ray J will have to fill her shoes quickly all the while taking the family business to the next level.
The show documents Brandy as she records her next album with Timbaland, while raising her seven-year-old daughter Sy’rai. Her younger brother Ray J digs beyond his notorious bad boy image and collaborates on his own musical project with Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins and other producers.
Reality television is nothing new for the famous siblings. Both have starred on reality shows, Brandy in 2002’s MTV series “Diary Presents Brandy: Special Delivery” and Ray J in VH1’s “For the Love of Ray J.”
Will the Norwoods have what it takes to continue to stay in the limelight while growing an entertainment empire? Watch as they overcome obstacles and stick together in “Brandy and Ray J: A Family Business,” premiering on VH1 Sunday, April 11, at 9 p.m.
