Previously profiled on this site... the upcoming new Queen Latifah-produced original scripted VH1 series called Single Ladies – a dramedy about a group of female 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.
The pilot episode will be a 2-hour feature-length film introduction to the weekly series that will follow, which will air on May 30th at 9PM on VH1.
And the series itself will begin in July.
Test screenings have reportedly been overwhelmingly positive, so much that VH1 felt confident enough to solidify an agreement, already 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 May 30th movie debut, VH1 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:
