It was in November when it Bravo TV announced that it had ordered 2 new Atlanta-set reality TV series - one of them being Married to Medicine.

Of course, with a title like that, you can assume that it belongs to the very successfull "Wives" universe, even though it's not called Doctor Wives, or The Real Housewives Of Atlanta Doctors.

Here's how Bravo described it:

"Married to Medicine" follows a group of successful and educated women, including doctors and wives of doctors, who are connected to the world of medicine in Atlanta. Whether delivering babies in Louboutins or rushing off to galas in Buckhead, these women do everything with style, drama, and of course, southern flair. Produced by FremantleMedia North America and developed by Purveyors of Pop with Matt Anderson, Nate Green and Maty Buss serving as Executive Producers. 

And if the below trailer is tells us anything, it's that, apparently, ratchetness has no borders. "Educated and successful" doctors aren't immune. They're just as loud, obnoxious, materialistic, superficial, and are prone to physical fights involving weave pulling, and the like.

Yay! Can't wait.

*Sigh*

This is the same garbage you've seen over and over and over again; and yet, no matter how many there are, audiences just can't seem to get enough.

Here's a profile of the cast of both doctors and doctor's wives which follows below; and underneath, you'll find a trailer for the new series, which will debut at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, March 24.

-- Dr. Jacqueline Walters: Doctor to stars like Toni Braxton, T.I. and Usher, this Board-certified OBGYN is also a two-time breast cancer survivor and advocate for breast cancer awareness. She also lives by the motto "Thin Is In" and is obsessed with eating healthy and excessive exercise.

-- Dr. Simone Whitmore: The independent OBGYN, who has her own practice since 2004, has been married to her more laid-back husband, Cecil Whitmore, for 16 years, and they have sons together. Known as "The Warden” and “Witchmore” to her staff, Whitmore in her spare time participates in a mentor program with Spelman College and a local high school.

-- Toya Bush-Harris: Bush-Harris met her husband, emergency medicine physician Eugene Harris, during a speed dating event five years ago while pursuing her master's in education from the University of Phoenix and working two jobs. Bush-Harris is helping to launch her husband’s medical concierge business, working on publishing a children’s nursery book series and volunteers at her church and as a mentor to local young women. The couple to two young boys also are in the process of building a home.

-- Mariah Huq: Dubbed "Queen Bee" and a mother of two, Huq is married to Dr. Aydin Huq, an emergency physician and native of Bangladesh, and openly embraces her husband's culture by attending Mosque, learning to cook traditional Indian food and studying Bengali. The founder/CEO of Mariah Media Group, troop leader of her daughter's Girl Scout Troop and a producer of Married to Medicine, Huq, along with her family, has a foundation in Bangladesh and is currently working to build a hospital in name of her late father-in-law.

-- Quad Lunceford-Webb: Known as the "Black Barbie" in her social circle, Lunceford-Webb is newly wed to psychiatrist Dr. Gregory Lunceford, whose reserved demeanor often clashes with her unpredictable feistiness. The couple, who have two dogs, support the Canine Assistants Foundation and volunteer their time and efforts with various charities and organizations throughout Atlanta.

-- Kari Wells: The British-born model has been married to Colombian-raised orthopedic surgeon Duncan Wells for 10 years. Wells has been the owner of a production company and CFO of her husband’s orthopedic practice and medical realty company. The couple to two kids support many charitable organizations including Doctors Without Borders and Thriving Children Atlanta.

And here's the trailer preview:

    Dr. Simone Whitmore why would you call someone's child a bitch.... shame on you... you call yourself a doctor... and your ObGyn too
    I hope this show is off the air very soon...

    Mrs. Quad is by far my favorite...Quad keep Kari Wells in check, let her have it whenever necessay cause she's a hot mess...I can't believe that she was ever a model. She should be married to a plastic surgeon, cause she needs much more work. She looks like she currently has an eating disorder and a drinking problem at 70 years old.

    Since the system never would post my comment, I will try to summarize the gist of my comment. The motto "thin is in" is extremely dangerous in a world where so many women, including women of color, are struggling with body issues. I also can understand, although I may not agree, with everyday people doing reality shows to generate income. The stars of this show have six and seven figure incomes. What is their excuse? Do they really think this show will draw extra patients to them or their husbands

    Correction: Apparently the only city in America with black people is Atlanta...

    I had a comment earlier, and the site kept saying it was spam. I will try again later. *Sigh*

    What the hell? The two doctors of the crew had better be on their best behavior, I mean "best" as in they're deemed "too boring" for the show and get replaced for any future seasons. When you have a legitimate career, and a respectable image to uphold, why oh why would you everevereverever sign on for this type of reality show? Do they see this as a chance to become the next Dr. Oz, Sanjay Gupta, or some a guru in Oprah's cabal? I don't get it.

    More derivative bullshyt...sickening.

    I don't know how I feel about a show that has a medical professional who's motto is "Thin Is In" and is obsessed excessive exercise. I hope these things are not glorified and the show shows her getting help for these unhealthy choices.
