WETV GREENLIGHTS SWV REALITY SHOW

At the Essence Music Festival today, the Grammy nominated R&B trio SWV (Sisters With Voices) announced from the main stage that WE tv is profiling their make-it-or-break-it comeback through a new unscripted series. “SWV – Sisters With Voices” will join WE tv’s successful slate of unscripted programming in early 2014. The network has ordered six, one-hour episodes from Entertainment One Television.


“The journey of SWV is the kind of real and personal comeback story our viewers love to see,” said Lauren Gellert, WE tv’s senior vice president of original production and development. “These dynamic women experienced enormous success together, then it all fell apart. United again, the stakes are higher than ever, and so – at times – is the drama and tension. We can’t wait to present this fresh, new series to WE tv viewers.”


After a string of hit songs in the 1990s, the ladies of SWV – Cheryl “Coko” Clemons, Leanne “Lelee” Lyons and Tamara “Taj” Johnson – were on top of the music world. Then, at the height of their success, in-fighting and drama lead to their demise. After a 15-year separation the trio reunited in an attempt to recapture their fame at the top of the music charts. The series will follow SWV as they write new music, tour and finally face the issues that ended their friendship and their careers once before.


“Sisters With Voices” is produced for WE tv by Entertainment One Television, executive produced by Tara Long, John Morayniss, Jeff Hervert, Howie Miller and Jennifer Long. Kate Farrell serves as the executive producer for WE tv.
