Here’s the synopsis, per the report: 

“Twenty years ago, Brianna was Professor Sex — one-fourth of the iconic 90s hip-hop group, the Nasty Bitches — rapping about money, sex and her all-around glamorous lifestyle. Today, Brianna is a proud wife and mother of five — in a stained sweatsuit who barely has a second to breathe. Not glamorous. But Brianna loves her life. The Nasty Bitches are a distant, distant memory. But when an opportunity arises for the group to reunite, Brianna will grapple with whether or not she still has the swagger and confidence that made her an icon decades ago.”

Eve is expected to record her own songs as her character. 

The cast also includes Taylor Selé, Emerson Brooks, and Pepi Sonuga.

The pilot is written by Zahir McGhee (Scandal) who will executive produce with Sabrina Wind, Tim Story (Tom & Jerry, Ride Along) and Sabrina Wind (Desperate Housewives, Devious Maids). 

“Queens” premieres Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 10PM ET/PT on ABC. Watch the new trailer below.
