VH1 Orders “Stevie & Joseline” Spin-Off
The inevitable is upon us.
Since season one of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” most fans knew that Joseline Hernandez would earn a spin-off series sooner or later. Apparently, that moment has arrived.
According to Variety, VH1 recently greenlit a new series, “Stevie & Joseline,” starring the self-proclaimed Puerto Rican Princess and her hit-making “husband” Steven Jordan.
The eight-episode half-hour series will follow the amusing couple as they venture to Hollywood to pursue “their dreams of superstardom,” which would explain all of Stevie’s talk about moving to California this past season.
Of course, Monami Entertainment is producing the series. Mona Scott-Young, Stephanie R. Gayle, Toby Barraud, Stefan Springman, Mala Chapple, Carmen Mitcho, Lashan Browning, Susan Levison, Nina L. Diaz, Ken Martinez and Vivian Gomez are all serving as executive producers.
“In a summer where the film ‘Straight Outta Compton’ went straight to No. 1, Taylor Swift’s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar topped the Billboard charts and our own ‘Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’ ranked as the No. 1 reality show on cable, hip-hop’s dominance of pop culture was confirmed yet again,” said Susan Levison, VH1’s EVP of original programming and production. “We’re excited to fuel our audience’s continued fascination with all things hip-hop by extending the storylines of some of their favorite ‘Love & Hip Hop’ cast members.”
Prepare for the foolishness, chile. Something tells us this show is going to be like most train wrecks that are difficult to watch, but impossible to look away from.
