T-Boz Joins a New TLC

Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins to Star in Docu-Series About Her Return to Music

Los Angeles, CA - The two biggest pop-culture brands by the name of TLC join forces for an all-new docu-series with "Totally T-Boz" (working title), focusing on Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins as she returns to Los Angeles with the goal of re-booting her musiccareer, this time as a single mother, and after surviving years of recoveryfrom a life-threatening brain tumor, which forced her to relearn how to walk and talk. Now, she's coming out of the shadows and uprooting her comfy life in the suburbs of Atlanta for a return to the bright lights of Hollywood, with the support of her closest family and friends.

"Tionne dominated the charts for years, turning the group TLC into household name, and her personal journey is as fascinating as her professional one," said Amy Winter, GM, TLC. "This series will open the door into T-Boz's struggles and successes, and the people who are there to support her as she works to make her dreams come true all over again."

Joining Tionne on this adventure are her daughter Chase, little brother Kayo, cousins Barb and Chris, best girlfriend Tae-Tae, and business partner Tara, who arehelping her confront the reality that this isn't the 1990's anymore: Now 42 and not in fighting shape, she must face the fact that she's a different person, and the industry has evolved dramatically. While known for giving 100% of herself as a part of one of the best selling female groups of all time, she's facing the exciting prospect of reinventing herself as a solo artist - and not only as a part of "TLC." With her team at her side, and tapping into her experience as a singer-songwriter, dancer, actress, author, choreographer, and executive producer, she's hustling hard to transform herself into a bigger success than ever before.

TLC has ordered four episodes of "Totally T-Boz," and the project has started filming, with John Doe Media producing. The network is planning an early 2013 premiere.
