‘Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta’ power-couple Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez are officially getting their own spin-off, Variety reports. K. Michelle is also getting a second season of ‘K. Michelle: My Life’, set to premiere Winter, 2016.
The untitled “Stevie & Joseline” series will follow the couple as they head to Hollywood to pursue their dreams of superstardom. VH1 has ordered eight half-hour episodes.
The spinoff hails from Monami Entertainment and Eastern with exec producers Mona Scott-Young, Stephanie R. Gayle, Toby Barraud, Stefan Springman, Mala Chapple, Carmen Mitcho, Lashan Browning, Susan Levison, Nina L. Diaz, Ken Martinez and Vivian Gomez.
“In a summer where the film ‘Straight Outta Compton’ went straight to #1, Taylor Swift’s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar topped the Billboard charts and our own “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” ranked as the #1 reality show on cable, hip hop’s dominance of pop culture was confirmed yet again,” said Susan Levison, VH1’s EVP of original programming and production. “We’re excited to fuel our audience’s continued fascination with all things hip hop by extending the storylines of some of their favorite ‘Love & Hip Hop’ cast members.”
“K.Michelle: My Life” follows “Love & Hip Hop” alum and recording artist K.Michelle, who serves as an exec producer on the series, along with Scott-Young, Gayle, Barraud, Springman, Chapple, Mitcho, Levison, Diaz, Martinez, Daniel Rogge, Chad Gruelach.
In its first season, “K.Michelle” ranked as the #3 new cable reality series among women 18-49 this past year.
We’ll definitely be watching both.
