R&B Divas LA

TV One has announced that the network will premiere R&B Divas LA, the newest chapter in the network's highly successful R&B Divas reality series franchise, via Video on Demand (VOD), on Sunday, July 7, a three days before the series' network premiere. 

The VOD premiere marks the first time in network history that TV One will debut and promote an original series on VOD before it airs on the linear network, which will be on Wednesday, July 10, 10 PM/ET. 

A follow-up to TV One's popular R&B Divas Atlanta series, the Los Angeles series centers on West Coast divas Kelly Price, Chante Moore, Dawn Robinson, Lil' Mo, Claudette Ortiz and Michel'le.

"The R&B Divas franchise has sustained heated buzz and anticipation among our viewers and we are delighted to offer them the LA series premiere early, via the VOD service," said Maureen Guthman, SVP Program Strategy and Acquisitions. "As with R&B Divas Atlanta, the Los Angeles series provides an intimate group portrait of highly respected female R&B artists, their professional successes and struggles, and the interplay between their careers, relationships and families - but with a uniquely LA flavor."

To further commemorate the R&B Divas franchise's success, TV One has saturated a full month of original specials and encores covering all things diva. June kicks off with an R&B Divas Atlanta Season 2 finale, Wednesday, June 19, 10PM/ET. Subsequent June and July specials include a two-part R&B Divas Atlanta Season 2 reunion and Season 2 marathon.

The Divas are coming together for a secret project showcasing their talents, trials, tribulations, and most of all triumph. Success is the only option for these 6 friends -- but is there room for all of them at the top? (Available on VOD)
