This Is Hot 97

As we announced earlier this week, VH1 has given the greenlight to several new original series, including a docu-series titled This Is Hot 97, which centers on New York's globally recognized #1 radio station HOT 97.

The half-hour unscripted series will take viewers on a behind-the-scenes look into the go-to destination for Hip Hop and R&B, giving viewers a look inside this iconic radio brand. 

HOT 97 is the global mecca of Hip Hop and R&B music, and this crew functions more as a family than a group of coworkers - they go hard for each other, but above all they live, eat and breathe HOT 97. Each episode of "This Is HOT 97" will draw upon the ambitions, rivalries and quirky personalities of the cast to capture all of the comedic and sometimes downright awkward moments that happen at the station on a daily basis. 

The series will also feature cameos from the well-known celebrities who regularly visit HOT 97 as on-air guests including Kanye West, Macklemore, Rick Ross, Mack Wilds, Wale and many more. 

This Is HOT 97 is executive produced by Mona Scott-Young for Monami Entertainment and Toby BarraudStefan SpringmanMala Chapple and Ian Gelfand for EasternSusan Levison, Brad Abramson and Stephen Mintz are executive producers for VH1. Co-executive producer for Eastern is David Digangi and Vivian Gomez is coordinating producer for VH1.

It will premiere on VH1, on Monday, March 31 at 10:30 PM ET/ PT.

Ahead of that debut date, VH1 has released a preview, which is embedded below:

    FAKE!! U can tell this is "scripted" to create story lines and arcs.

    I'd rather see a documentary dealing with the chaotic recent history of WLIB and the demise of KISSFM in NYC and what it means for the future of radio programming geared toward the Black community in NYC, in particular consciousness raising music/talk programs on the radio.

    Most of the VH-1 audience would fall asleep or change the channel if people weren't screaming at each other, pulling off weaves, and throwing drinks while dressed like shoppers at the Discount Stripper Apparel Warehouse.
