Eve To Star In New ABC Hip-Hop Drama ‘Queens’

Posted February 22, 2021

After announcing her departure as co-hosts of CBS’s ‘The Talk’ months ago, rapper/actress Eve is returning to TV in her first starring role as an actress in quite some time.

The pitbull in a skirt has been tapped as a lead in ‘Queens,’ a new hourlong pilot for ABC from Zahir McGhee, Sabrina Wind, and ABC Signature.

via Deadline:

In Queens, written by McGhee, estranged and out-of-touch, four women in their 40s reunite for a chance to recapture their fame and regain the swagger they had as the Nasty Bitches – their ’90s group that made them legends in the hip-hop world.

Eve will play one of the women, Brianna. 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 will record and perform songs as her character.

McGhee and Wind executive produce.

Eve is a Grammy, Daytime Emmy, BET, MTV Video Music Award winning and multi-platinum selling artist, served as the co-host of CBS The Talk for the past four years.

In October 2020, Eve launched her debut podcast, Constantly Evolving, with BBC Sound. It’ has been commissioned for a second season, coming late spring.

Eve is no stranger to acting having starred in the wildly popular ‘Barbershop’ franchise as well as films such as ‘XXX’ and ‘Whip It.’ From 2003-2006, she also starred as Shelley Williams in her own UPN sitcom ‘Eve’

No word on when fans can expect to see the new project, but more details will be forthcoming. Stay tuned.
