BET is putting a major spotlight on a few of our favorite 90s R&B and hip hop girl groups in a new unscripted series titled Ladies Night.  According to THR, the show is part of the network’s new lineup of programming that was announced during its recent upfront presentation.

Ladies Night is a 10-episode docuseries that follows the personal and professional drama of iconic girl groups—En Vogue, Salt-n-Pepa, Spinderella and SWV—as they embark on a national tour. With a run of shows across the U.S., these artists must create, choreograph and execute a night featuring all of their famous hits. With major money on the line, the OGs will need to put their pride to the side in order to launch something truly memorable.

In addition to Ladies Night, BET has also ordered a scripted series based on the 90s hit film Boomerang as well as a series from Will Packer titled Peachtree Place and a drama inspired by Soul Train creator Don Cornelius titled American Soul. It has also ordered a new reality series from T.I. titled The Grand Hustle and a true crime docuseries hosted by the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson titled True Justice.
