Atlanta, the assembly line of reality TV
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
