VH1 Greenlights New Movie 'Single Ladies' to Series

The New Eight-Episode One Hour Series and Movie Are Set to Premiere on VH1 in July 2011

NEW YORK, Oct. 19 -- VH1 has teamed up with Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit Entertainment to bring viewers "Single Ladies," a new comedic drama series that asks the question what do women really want in a relationship? The series will mark VH1's first foray into the hour-long scripted genre. The movie was shot in the summer of 2010 and the series is set to begin production in late 2010. The movie and series will both premiere in July 2011.

"Single Ladies" is a comedic drama about Val, Keisha, and April - three best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships. Val (Stacey Dash) is an ambitious aspiring fashion mogul who wants to find a true partner. Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy), on the other hand, is a former video dancer just looking for a rich man to keep her in style. April (Charity Shea,) has supposedly found the perfect man and the perfect marriage - but is learning that marriage isn't necessarily a happy ending. "Single Ladies" is a modern, sexy series set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity that will constantly explore which woman has the right approach to relationships.

The cast includes: Stacey Dash, LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea, and DB Woodside. "Single Ladies" the movie features guest appearances by Lauren London, Eve, Common, Chili, and Kim Porter. Executive producer, Queen Latifah, will make a guest appearance in the series.

"This movie and now the series is the perfect way for VH1 to jump into the scripted arena. It taps directly into relationship issues and life questions that we know our audience loves, and it does it via a gorgeous, funny, diverse and talented cast of strong female characters. Their complex lives and loves play out against a super hip Atlanta backdrop which is sure to be a character in the movie," stated Jeff Olde, EVP of Original Programming and Production, VH1. "Once we saw an early cut of the movie we knew right away we needed to make this a series."

"My partner Shakim and I are excited to collaborate with VH1, as they have a similar vision on how to bring this show to life. I think 'Single Ladies' will really fill a hole in what is needed on television today," says Executive Producer, Queen Latifah.

Executive producers include Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere, and Shelby Stone for Flavor Unit Entertainment. Executive producers also include Maggie Malina, Stacy Littlejohn, and Tamra Davis. Executive producing for VH1 are Jill Holmes and Jeff Olde. "Single Ladies" was written by Stacy Littlejohn and directed by Tamra Davis.
