First Look: Bravo Debuts Trailer For Mona Scott-Young’s Reality Show, ‘The New Atlanta’

Back in November we told you that move-making Mona was in development with Bravo for a new reality show documenting the lives of young professionals working and living in the Atlanta area. The plot was said to depict the active social lives and tumultuous family lives of the show’s stars. Since the initial talk of the new show, the title has changed from Taking Atlanta to The New Atlanta, but the concept appears to remain the same. A brief description of the show found on the Bravo site reads:

“[The New Atlanta] follows the next generation of the city’s trailblazing young professionals who are hungry to achieve their dreams and find love as they struggle to resolve heartbreaks from the past. Aggressive in both their professional and personal lives, each hopes to make their mark in the cutthroat industries of fashion, music, event planning and business while taking advantage of Atlanta’s hot social scene. Coming from a variety of backgrounds and bringing their own distinct perspectives.”

Bravo also released a trailer for The New Atlanta recently and to be honest, I’m not quite sure what to make of it. The trailer opens offering a brief glimpse into what appears to be the professional lives of the cast members, showing extremely brief clips of a fashion show and a musical performance. Then, the camera quickly cuts to clips depicting the personal and dating lives of the characters. Nothing really stands out until midway through the trailer, which is when an apparent love triangle between three of the cast members gets rather ugly. At one point, the man in the middle of the love triangle nonchalantly says, “I’m not exclusive with nobody,” as if he’s enjoying witnessing two women fight over him. The rest of the trailer consists of a lot of pushing, shoving, fighting, name-calling and drink-throwing. Something about all of it seems really forced and unauthentic. Hopefully the actual show proves to be better than the trailer.

The New Atlanta is scheduled to premiere September 17th at 10 pm ET/PT.

    Porsha Stewart should have waited for this show. Well, it is a better fit than RHOA is for her.

    Is this New Atlanta going to feature something other than strip clubs and trifilin’ dudes, cuz that’s the only thing I remember from when I lived there. Oh and racism in the corporate world.

    Oh Lord, please, not another one…………………. when is this going to stop?

  • chanda norton

    I understand that Atlanta has a lot of black people, but don’t these Hollyweird types know that PG County in the MD-DC area, is ranked among the highest in Black professionals. When is someone going to visit Chocolate City…and do some filming…geesh!?

      The only reason a lot of reality shows are made in Atlanta now is because it’s cheaper to make it there.
