Today the network is unveiling the teaser of the latest addition to their popular Friday night unscripted programming lineup — “Belle Collective” — which premieres Friday, January 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The new series from the producers behind the hit “Love & Marriage: Huntsville” centers on the personal and professional lives of five successful, glamourous boss women who are redefining what it means to be a southern belle in Jackson, Mississippi. These dynamic women represent Mississippi’s finest Black female entrepreneurs, determined to break ceilings – glass and otherwise – while shredding long-held stereotypes of the South. They must set aside their differences to redevelop a struggling mid-twentieth century historic district that was once known as the hub for Black-owned businesses.
Check out the teaser below:
Brought together by their passion for bringing Mississippi out of its stereotypical backwoods reputation, the Belle Collective includes Dr. Antoinette Liles, one of few Black female dentists in the state. Dr. Liles is navigating a recent divorce and opening up her very own practice. Supermom and businesswoman Lateshia Pearson is CEO of the National Women’s Brunch Association; Latrice Rogers is the mastermind behind Goddess Lengths, the most successful hair care emporium in the region, and Tambra Cherie is the stunning on-air radio personality for 97.7 The Beat, Jackson’s #1 Hip Hop and R&B station. Rounding out this powerhouse quintet is Marie Hamilton-Abston, a self-made millionaire and CEO of the bustling Hamilton Davis Mental Health empire.
