Vanessa Williams and Tichina Arnold are bringing all of the drama to VH1’s new sizzling scripted series Daytime Divas.
The new series is based on Star Jones’ novel, Satan’s Sisters… A Novel of Fiction. Every weekday at noon, Maxine (Vanessa Williams), Mo (Tichina Arnold), Heather (Fiona Gubelmann), Kibby (Chloe Bridges), and Nina (Camille Guaty)—hosts of The Lunch Hour, the long-running women’s talk show—gather around the table to discuss life, love, politics, and juicy gossip. But behind the scenes, it’s even juicier — a backstage world filled with power struggles, diva fits, and steamy affairs.
Daytime Divas is set to hit VH1 on Monday, June 5th at 8 PM ET and ahead of its premiere, the network has already announced a slew of magnetic guest stars including, Tasha Smith, La La Anthony, Janet Mock, Star Jones, Tamera Mowry-Housley, and Richard T. Jones among others. The cast of The View is even set to guest star on the show as themselves. (A feud between the ladies of The View and the Daytime Divas would be deliciously fun to witness.)
On the series, Tamera Mowry-Housley will play a friend of Mo’s who gives her some career advice. Richard T. Jones will play Ben Branson, a sexy, charismatic real estate mogul who is set up on a blind date with Maxine and Star Jones will play herself.
A week ahead of its premiere, VH1 has just dropped the first 8 minutes of the Daytime Divas pilot. Be sure to check it out for yourself below.
