Previously profiled on this site... the new Queen Latifah-produced original scripted VH1 series called Single Ladies debuts TONIGHT, May 30th at 9PM on VH1 in a 2-hour pilot episode that will serve as an introduction to what will be a weekly series to follow later in the summer, in July.

The dramedy centers on a group of best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships, set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity, with Lisa Raye & Stacey Dash, Lauren London and others starring.

Test screenings have reportedly been overwhelmingly positive, so much that VH1 felt confident enough to solidify an agreement, ordering 8 episodes to start, with inevitable comparisons being made to HBO’s Sex In The City.

The series is said to be meant to satisfy fans of CW’s Girlfriends which was canceled in 2008.

DB Woodside is also part of the principal cast; while Eve, Common, Chili, and Kim Porter appear in the pilot movie (although not sure about the rest of the series).

In anticipation of the tonight's movie debut, VH1 previously unveiled several clips and profiles to whet your appetite; I embedded 4 of them below, which should give you an idea of what to expect. Who'll be watching?
