At­lanta, the assem­bly line of re­al­ity TV

CityPress - - Trending -

The New At­lanta BET (DStv chan­nel 194) Wed­nes­day, 7.20pm NeNe Leakes and her fel­low housewives achieved star­dom with their drama-filled an­tics on The Real Housewives of At­lanta. It spawned sev­eral spin-offs – for a view­er­ship clearly ravenous for con­tent giv­ing an in­side look into At­lanta’s wealthy black pop­u­la­tion.

Now, a new crop of At­lantans are in the spotlight in their own un­scripted re­al­ity se­ries, The New At­lanta.

In the pre­miere, as­pir­ing singer Africa in­vites suc­cess­ful bou­tique owner Emily to at­tend her friend Alex’s col­lege-grad­u­a­tion party, but things don’t go as ex­pected.

This looks like over­the-top drama and the trashy, guilty tele­vi­sion you se­cretly love, but won’t ad­mit watch­ing. Don’t worry, your se­cret is safe with us. – Grethe Koen
