TV ONE CHANGES REALITY GENRE WITH NEW SERIES "THE NEXT 15"

Series Breaks "Fourth Wall" And Follows the Lives of Reality TV's Most Notorious Stars as They Count Down To Their Next Big Break

SILVER SPRING, MD., Nov. 6, 2015 - TV One today announced production has begun on The Next 15, a docu-series following the lives of six reality stars whose infamous television debuts have come and gone. Currently filming in Los Angeles, the series documents the return of one of the original reality TV divas, Tiffany "New York" Pollard (Flavor Of Love, I Love New York) and Claudia Jordan, who is out for redemption since recently ousted from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The cast also consists of reality show veterans Jennifer Williams (Basketball Wives), Karamo Brown (The Real World: Philadelphia), Laura Govan (Basketball Wives: LA), Raymond "Benzino" Scott (Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta). All are attempting to generate their next 15 minutes of fame. More than a game changer in reality television, TV One's The Next 15 is disrupting the genre as we know it. The series showcases the normally unseen "fourth wall" between the producers and the talent, revealing what happens not only on camera but behind it too as the action unfolds.

These stars gained infamy as a result of their tumultuous personal lives playing out over the airwaves but are now committed to changing their public persona and taking their careers to new heights. TV One's The Next 15, the latest offering from Carlos King - creator and executive producer of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and the network's hit series Hollywood Divas - is set to premiere in Q1 2016.

"The revolution is being televised and it is The Next 15!" said King. "This groundbreaking series showcases some of reality's most iconic personalities in a spotlight like you've never seen them before, while addressing the viewer's curiosity of what it takes to make a reality show. The veil has finally been lifted giving viewers exclusive access into the production process of a docu-series."

"It is with great excitement that we broaden our relationship with Carlos King who has an extraordinary ability of delivering dynamic and compelling content that connects with our audience," said D'Angela Proctor, Senior Vice President of Original Programming and Production. "With this new project, viewers will get a fresh perspective on the drive and ambition of reality stars who know there aren't guarantees of longevity in the genre and who must work just as hard and twice as fast to stay in the game."

The Next 15 is Executive Produced by Carlos King of Kingdom Reign alongside Sergio Alfaro and Erica Forstadt of Eclipse TV. Lamar Chase is Producer; Robyn Greene Arrington is Executive in Charge of Production; and D'Angela Proctor is Head of Original Programming and Production TV One.
