VH1 has teamed up with Queen Latifah to turn her upcoming “Single Ladies” film into the network’s very own first scripted series.
Surely, this is not the first time a TV series has been based off of a film, but in this case, the show is being picked up before the movie has been released.
“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.
The series will mark VH1’s first foray into the hour-long scripted genre and Latifah will make a guest appearance.
The movie features guest appearances by Lauren London, Eve, Common, Chili, and Kim Porter.
Both will both premiere in July 2011.
