The biggest stars of ratchet reality series Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta are easily Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J. So it should be no surprise that the allegedly married couple are getting their own spinoff show.
VH1 will renew one new series and add another spinning off its lynchpin Love & Hip Hop franchise, the network said today while taking a breather between its two-part Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta reunion special, among the top-rated cable reality series of the summer. Both shows spin from Atlanta: VH1 has ordered Season 2 of K.Michelle: My Life, and is launching an untitled new series featuring Stevie J and Joseline. Both are slated for winter 2016.
“In a summer where the film Straight Outta Compton went straight to #1, Taylor Swift’s collaboration with Kendrick Lamar topped the Billboard charts and our ownLove & Hip Hop: Atlanta ranked as the #1 reality show on cable, hip hop’s dominance of pop culture was confirmed yet again,” said Susan Levison, EVP Original Programming and Production at VH1. “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.”
Set to premiere in Winter 2016, VH1 describes Joseline and Stevie’s show as follows:
Picking up after “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” Stevie J and Joseline head to Los Angeles in VH1’s new untitled half-hour spin-off series. Premiering this winter, these eight episodes will follow the couple as they hit the west coast and set their sights on the Hollywood big screen. While continuing to work on their respective careers, Joseline tries to bond with Stevie’s five children and Stevie J heads back to the studio and reconnects with old friends in the music industry. With these two, relationship highs and lows are par for the course, but with a few laughs and a lot of love, Stevie J and Joseline consistently prove that they can overcome any obstacle.
Recently, Stevie J reunited with Sean “Diddy” Combs and the Hitmen to produce music for the Bad Boy founder’s forthcoming new album.
