TV One has renewed its music-themed reality series R&B Divas for a second season and will develop a Los Angeles-based spinoff of the show later this year, the network announced Tuesday.
The Atlanta-based series, which followed the lives Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert-Daniels, Monifah Carter, Syleena Johnson and Keke Wyatt as they worked together to produce a compilation album, has received a eight episode order for its sophomore season.
“R&B Divas has definitely struck a positive chord with viewers,” said Toni Judkins, executive vice president programming and production for TV One in a statement. “Week-after-week, the series continued to build on its audience and we’re thrilled to provide another season and a new franchise of a dynamic program that is clearly resonating with audiences.”
Based on its success of R&B Divas, the network will spin-off a second series, tentatively titled R&B Divas: LA, which will follow the lives and careers of five yet-to-be-named Los Angeles based R&B performers. The eight-episode series is slated to premiere in third quarter 2013, said network officials.
