Four fierce ‘Queens’ will take their thrones on ABC.
Blaque. Destiny’s Child. 3LW. 702. Even if we wanted to, we could never forget the lasting impact that girl groups across generations have had on our lives. In the new original musical drama Queens, ABC explores that unique dynamic through the story of a washed up girl group seeking a career revival decades after their biggest hit put them on the map.
Estranged and out of touch, four women in their 40s reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as the Nasty Bitches—their ’90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world. “Queens” stars Eve as Brianna aka Professor Sex, Naturi Naughton as Jill aka Da Thrill, Nadine Velazquez as Valeria aka Butter Pecan, Taylor Selé as Eric Jones, Pepi Sonuga as Lil Muffin and Brandy as Naomi aka Xplicit Lyrics.
Eve, Brandy, and Naughton are all known for their extensive musical backgrounds. Zahir McGhee, Sabrina Wind and Tim Story are executive producers. The series is one of the cores of ABC’s 2021-2022 Fall TV schedule, which will broadcast Tuesdays at 10pm on ABC.
