Los Angeles, June 20, 2011 -- VH1 is expanding their 'Basketball Wives" franchise with an explosive new series set in Los Angeles featuring the wives and girlfriends of players both the Lakers and their cross-town rivals, the Clippers. VH1 has also given the greenlight to a new dating series, "Siggy Flicker" (working title) featuring the dynamic matchmaker Siggy Flicker and her match-making service in New York teaching the lovelorn to be dating powerhouses.

"Basketball Wives" Premieres on Monday, August 29 at 8pm ET/PT

Elbow throwing, trash talking and in-your-face action: forget the NBA, we're talking about their wives! The successful VH1 franchise "Basketball Wives" just tapped a new team of leading ladies to take Los Angeles by storm in "Basketball Wives LA" premiering Monday, August 29 at 8 PM ET/PT.

This 10 episode, hour-long series will dive into the real-life locker room of these leading ladies, giving viewers a never-before-seen look at what it takes to live in La La Land and be connected to a famous professional athlete. For the most part, these women live the life with the best cars, biggest mansions and hottest bling but living the high life is not all glamour and often there is a price to pay. Cameras will follow these women as they attempt to juggle their relationships, infidelity issues, children and friendships while trying to find the perfect balance between supporting their families and realizing their own career ambitions. "Basketball Wives LA" brings a full court press to VH1 Monday, August 29 at 8 PM ET/PT.
