Greenlight! Taj, Coko & LeLee Get New "SWV - Sisters With Voices" WeTV Reality Show About Their Comeback
Wondering what's been up with the Sisters With Voices? Well SWV just nabbed a new reality show on WeTV that's all about their make-it-or-break-it comeback.
Taj George is about to embark on her second reality show after her stint on TV One's "I Married A Baller". SWV (pictured above this weekend at the Essence Festival) announced during their mainstage performance at the Superdome that WE tv is profiling their make-it-or-break-it comeback through a new unscripted series.
“SWV - Sisters With Voices” will join WE tv’s successful slate of unscripted programming in early 2014 with six, one-hour episodes from Entertainment One Television.
“The journey of SWV is the kind of real and personal comeback story our viewers love to see,” said Lauren Gellert, WE tv’s senior vice president of original production and development. “These dynamic women experienced enormous success together, then it all fell apart. United again, the stakes are higher than ever, and so – at times – is the drama and tension. We can’t wait to present this fresh, new series to WE tv viewers.”
The background: After a string of hit songs in the 1990s (we ALL still know the words to "Weak" like the back of our hands), the ladies of SWV – Cheryl “Coko” Clemons, Leanne “Lelee” Lyons and Tamara “Taj” Johnson – were on top of the music world. Then, at the height of their success, in-fighting and drama lead to their demise. After a 15-year separation the trio reunited in an attempt to recapture their fame at the top of the music charts.
According to the press release, the series will follow SWV as they write new music, tour and finally face the issues that ended their friendship and their careers once before.
We'll be watching...will you?
