The Queens are coming.
ABC has picked up the hip-hop drama featuring Eve, Brandy, Naturi Naughton, and Nadine Velazquez as four estranged and out-of-touch women in their 40s who reunite for a chance to recapture the fame and swagger they had as the Nasty Bitches, a ’90s group that made them hip-hop legends.
According to Deadline, Eve stars as Brianna aka Professor Sex, Brandy as Naomi aka Xplicit Lyrics, Naturi Naughton as Jill aka Da Thrill, and Nadine Velazquez as Valeria aka Butter Pecan.
In the first 30-second teaser, the ladies reunite for the first time in 20 years to perform at “the biggest Black award show in the world,” but they only have four days to rehearse.
“Tell me how this isn’t gonna be a disaster,” says Eve’s character, Brianna, a proud wife and mother of five. However, they somehow seem to pull it off.
Written and executive produced by Zahir McGhee (“Scandal”), “Queens” will air Tuesdays at 10 p.m. this fall as part of ABC’s 2021-22 lineup.
