SILVER SPRING, MD, January 22, 2013 - Coming off an explosive 2012 summer season as TV One's most watched reality series, R&B Divas has been renewed by the network for a second season and begins production in Atlanta this month. The show, which followed Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert-Daniels, Monifah Carter, Syleena Johnson and Keke Wyatt working together to produce a compilation album, will return featuring the original cast in spring 2013 with an eight-episode order. Based on its success with the format, TV One will spin-off a second series, R&B Divas: LA (working title), which will follow the lives and careers of five yet-to-be-named Los Angeles based R&B performers with an eight-episode order slated for Q3 2013.
