TV Upfronts 2015 : What WeΓÇÖll Be Watching On Bravo, OWN & Oxygen!By Delaina Dixon | May 11, 2015 | Entertainment
It’s Upfronts Week, the time when broadcast TV gives us a sneak peek of what you’ll be itching to see for the rest of season!
The DivaGals will be highlighting our fave shows from all five broadcast networks, but we’re starting the week off with what you’ll be craving to see on our fave cable networks. Read on below!
BET. There are a whole bunch of hot new shows coming to the network, but we can’t wait to get our hands on Brandy Norwood‘s Zoe Moon. With The Game coming to a close, Brandy will take on the role a single mom who’s striving to become a cosmetics mogul in her new series. Let’s hope her lip gloss is poppin’ ΓÇª in business and in love.
Bravo. Harper Valley’s got nothin’ on Carla Stephens. She’s president of Locust Grove, GeorgiaΓÇÖs Parent-Teacher Organization, and runs it like a Fortune 500 company. She and her fellow mom’s work it hard to raise thousands for their biggest investment ΓÇô their little ones. See how they do it on the network’s new series Mother Funders (pictured up top).
Esquire. We loved watching Brandon T. Jackson in Tropic Thunder. Now we’ll get to see a little deeper into his life and helps him craft his funny on the new docu-series Comedians of L.A. See how he lives, works and battles his comic rivals. And then you can migrate to Oxygen for Living With Funny to see how he keeps laughing while he deals with his personal life.
OWN. Holly Robinson’s Peete takes us into her family’s daily life in For PeeteΓÇÖs Sake, as she and her hubby, NFL quarterback vet Rodney Peete, juggle their careers and their bustling family life. That includes their four kids and HollyΓÇÖs wild-and-crazy mom, Dolores. She’s 79, and does “grandma” her own unique way. How can we not watch?
Oxygen. Having an assistant can make life a little easier (TV DivaGal knows, I have a great one!). But what’s life like when you’re the one picking up their laundry, arranging their schedule and basically catering to your boss’ every crazy whim? That’s the story behind the new docu-series The Hustle, brought to us by Nick Cannon’s production team. It’s the real-life saga of ambitious twenty-somethings ambitious 20-somethings who are willing to do whatever it takes to learn the ropes one step at a time so they can climb the ranks. And we give a special shou tout to our pal Saptosa Foster at 135th Street Agency, who’s giving us a peek into her world through the eyes of her assistant.
