CENTRIC Puts the Spotlight on the Comeback Trail of R&B Recording Group Dru Hill With New Series 'KEITH SWEAT'S PLATINUM HOUSE'

KEITH SWEAT'S PLATINUM HOUSE Premieres on CENTRIC on Monday, June 28 At 8:00 PM ET/ 5:00 PM PT

NEW YORK, June 1 -- CENTRIC brings the music and the drama when legendary multi-platinum, veteran producer and recording artist Keith Sweat presents R&B group Dru Hill with the ultimate opportunity to regain a top position in the music industry with the new reality series KEITH SWEAT'S PLATINUM HOUSE. Premiering on Monday, June 28 at 8:00 PM ET/ 5:00 PM PT, the series takes a look at the four men who make up the group Dru Hill as they search for the path of success. The challenge presented to them by Keith Sweat is simple; complete the Platinum House boot camp and record the album, InDRUpendence Day while attempting to rebuild the brotherhood they once shared before their differences drove them to pursue solo careers.

KEITH SWEAT'S PLATINUM HOUSE offers R&B recording artists Dru Hill (Sisqo, Nokio, Jazz and newest member Tao along with their business manager Kevin Peck) the chance to reestablish their rightful place at the top of the music charts with Keith's guidance, after disappearing from the spotlight seven years ago. For the four men originally from Druid Park, Baltimore, this journey will not be easy as they individually accept the challenge to do whatever it takes to once again become the superstars they were in years past.

With KEITH SWEAT'S PLATINUM HOUSE, viewers watch as the group is introduced to a team builder, a trainer, vocal coach and a licensed therapist to assist them in making their way back to the top. They soon realize that in order to be #1 again it will take resolve and compromise within the group. Personalities clash as the guys are reunited once again and Keith - along with his industry expertise - steps in hard to guide the guys across the finish line.
