#Roommates, Eve and Naturi Naughton are gearing up to star in a new drama pilot that will give fans a nostalgic look at hip hop in the 90s. The two ladies have just been confirmed to star in the hip hop drama ‘Queens’—which centers around four friends who were once a part of a superstar female rap group.
According to @Deadline, Eve and Naturi Naughton are taking it back to their musical roots with the announcement of a drama pilot for ABC. ‘Queens’ is the latest musical television series all about hip hop, following shows like ‘Empire’ and ‘Wu-Tang: An American Saga.’ Written by Zahir McGhee, the series is about four estranged former group members, now in their 40s, who reunite for a chance to reclaim their musical fame as the ‘Nasty B**ches’—their 90s group that made them legends in the hip hop world.
Naturi will play Jill, aka Da Thrill, a founding member of the Nasty B**ches. Back in the day she was known for her legendary rhymes and nasty drug habit. These days, Jill lives a quiet life as a devout Catholic with her husband. Meanwhile, Eve is set to play another one of the group’s members named Brianna, however, the specific details about her character have not been released yet.
The project marks Eve’s official return to scripted television, following her mid-2000s self-titled comedy series ‘Eve,’ as she recently left her co-hosting gig on CBS’s ‘The Talk’. Naturi can be seen every week on the Starz hit spin-off series ‘Power Book II: Ghost’, reprising her role as Tasha St. Patrick.
