Their company, Rn'B Productions, features an impressive roster of musical artists including Brandy, Ray J and their father Willie, who also serves as the company's vocal coach. But with Sonja ready to step down as CEO, Brandy and Ray J have to fill her shoes while trying to take the family business to the next level. In this series, both Brandy and Ray J try to expand their careers. Brandy steps back into the music scene and teams up with famous producer, Timbaland, for a new album.

Sonja, the matriarch of the family, fights frustration trying to keep her family on track, while passing the business reins to Brandy and Ray. And, father, Willie continues to coach his famous children on life and music. Despite their success and celebrity status, the Norwoods' are a typical American family who stick together.
