NEW YORK, NY - September 6, 2012 - In their own spin-off from the hit VH1 series "Love & Hip Hop," Jim Jones and Chrissy Lampkin are back. In this eight episode docu-series, Jim and Chrissy attempt to navigate their way through commitment, drama, friendships, the music industry, fertility and family, all while working toward wedded bliss. The relationship road for Chrissy and Jim has been a long one, but it is a journey that they are not experiencing by themselves; "Chrissy & Mr. Jones" are joined by "Love & Hip Hop" fan favorites, Emily Bustamante and Nancy "Mama" Jones, and Chrissy's longtime girlfriend Talia Coles joins in the fun this time around. "Chrissy & Mr. Jones" premieres on Monday, September 24 at 9:30PM ET/PT.

Viewers of the first two seasons of "Love & Hip Hop" witnessed Chrissy and Jim experience a tumultuous period of their relationship. But after eight years of courtship and two emotional proposals later, and a sparkling ring on her finger - and a seriously big one at that - are Chrissy and Jim really ready to get hitched? Has Jim matured to the point where Chrissy feels like he needs to be in order to make such a big step in their lives? Is motherhood in her future? Although Chrissy seems to be at a crossroads in her life, one thing is for certain, she is ready to step out of Jim's shadow and establish herself away from his credit line and pursue her own professional endeavors in the fashion industry.

Meanwhile, Jim Jones is diligently working on his own career. Jim has spent the past decade designing an empire that he hopes will solidify his place in hip-hop history. After continued success with his Dipset crew and his Diplomat record label, Jim's clothing lines Vampire Life and Protocol are sold around the globe.

Not one to be left out of the action, Nancy "Mama" Jones still up to her old tricks. Looking to launch her own perfume line fragrantly named "PumKásh," Mama Jones still finds the time to hassle Chrissy and Jim about certain issues in their relationship. The latest issue--having a baby. While her rocky relationship with her future daughter-in-law is at a seemingly more peaceful place, drama between the two of them is always lurking around the corner.

Chrissy's good friend from "Love & Hip Hop," Emily Bustamante joins the cast of "Chrissy & Mr. Jones," and she is back on her grind working as a celebrity stylist. As one of Chrissy's main confidantes, Emily is also back with longtime love rapper Fabolous and hoping to follow in Jim and Chrissy's marital footsteps.

Newcomer Talia Coles, fashion stylist to hip-hop royalty, is joining forces with Team Chrissy. While Talia's main gig is designing original jackets for Trey Songz, her dream is to be the next big R&B singer. Represented by manager and ex-boyfriend JoJo Brim, Talia's past often clashes with her present dreams.

Will Jim and Chrissy finally tie the knot? How does the pursuit for a stable family compete against the unpredictable world of the music industry? Find out in VH1's "Chrissy & Mr. Jones."
