Eve & Naturi Naughton star in “Queens” – a hip-hop drama a few fictional rap group from the 1990s
#Roommates, Eve and Naturi Naughton are preparing to star in a new drama pilot that will give fans a nostalgic look at hip hop in the ’90s. The two women have just been confirmed to star in the hip hop drama “Queens”, which is about four friends who were once part of a female superstar rap group.
According to @Deadline, Eve and Naturi Naughton are bringing it back to their musical roots with the announcement of a drama pilot for ABC. “Queens” is the latest hip hop musical television series, following shows such as “Empire” and “Wu-Tang: An American Saga”. The series was written by Zahir McGhee and is about four estranged former group members in their forties who reunite to regain their musical fame as “Nasty B ** ches” – their 90s group that made them legends in the hip Hops world.
Naturi will play Jill, aka Da Thrill, a founding member of Nasty B ** ches. She used to be known for her legendary rhymes and nasty drug habits. These days, Jill lives a quiet life as a devout Catholic with her husband. In the meantime, Eve will play another member of the group named Brianna. However, the specific details about her character have not yet been released.
The project marks Eve’s official return to screenwriting television after her self-titled comedy series “Eve” in the mid-2000s, when she recently left her co-hosting appearance on CBS’s “The Talk”. Naturi can be seen every week in the Starz spin-off series ‘Power Book II: Ghost’, in which she repeats her role as Tasha St. Patrick.
