TV ONE RENEWS HIT SERIES "R&B DIVAS" AND ANNOUNCES NEW LOS ANGELES FRANCHISE

SILVER SPRING, MD, January 22, 2013 - Coming off an explosive 2012 summer season as TV One's most watched reality series, R&B Divas has been renewed by the network for a second season and begins production in Atlanta this month. The show, which followed Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert-Daniels, Monifah Carter, Syleena Johnson and Keke Wyatt working together to produce a compilation album, will return featuring the original cast in spring 2013 with an eight-episode order. Based on its success with the format, TV One will spin-off a second series, R&B Divas: LA (working title), which will follow the lives and careers of five yet-to-be-named Los Angeles based R&B performers with an eight-episode order slated for Q3 2013.

R&B Divas premiered August 20 and quickly established itself as one of the network's most popular shows. In its first season, R&B Divas averaged a 0.75 HH rating delivering 426,000 homes and among 25-54, posted a 0.63 rating, delivering 395,000 viewers. Over the course of eight telecasts, the show reached over 2.7M unique viewers and enjoyed a 132% increase in its Facebook fans.

"R&B Divas has definitely struck a positive chord with viewers," remarked Toni Judkins, executive vice president programming and production for TV One. "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."

"We are elated to team up with TV One yet again on Season 2 of R&B Divas," said Thinkfactory Media Executive Producer, Adam Reed. "We look forward to showing the fans the many incredible things the ladies are up to now and can't wait to give viewers a glimpse into what the west coast has to offer with the new LA spinoff."
